South Denver Lodge No. 93 Had its beginning around the prescription counter of the drug store of Azel S. Bush at 434 Broadway. Accordingly, early in 1893, an application was made by 18 Masons to Most Worshipful Grand Master William D. Wright, for a dispensation which was granted on February 9, 1893 and South Denver Lodge U.D. was instituted on February 13, 1893 with I. S. Elrod as Worshipful Master. The first regular communication was held in Tuck's Hall, South Denver.
