The story behind the establishment of the Old Ashville Masonic Lodge and Mattie Lou Teague Crow Museum is a very interesting tale. Some may find it quite ridiculous, but others, especially those who have a flair for the dramatics and great interest in preserving historic things, would definitely enjoy it.

The tale starts with the Old Ashville Masonic Lodge in Ashville, Alabama. Built in the 1850s, it was slated to be demolished to give way to the expansion of the City Jail. Mattie Lou Teague Crow stepped in, however, and had the building moved to its current location. She started the Save The Ashville Masonic Lodge Council and according to local tradition, she used was very persuasive and made sure that her wishes were delivered. She succeeded, though.

Now, the Old Ashville Masonic Lodge and Mattie Lou Teague Crow Museum ?stands as a monument to the city?s history?, and to Crow as well, who is considered as its matron saint.
