Temple Theater and Masonic Lodge

Claude H. Lindsley designed this 496 seat theater/Masonic lodge in Leland, MS.  It was constructed in 1930 by builder J. Pat Fowler.  An earlier photograph shows the trim as pale blue, which was more attractive and less jarring than this dark blue.  I'm assuming this color was selected during the time the theater served as the Leland Blues Museum, prior to their move into an old hotel across the street.
