A story about the trowel which has been passed down by word of
mouth from 1909. Most Worshipful Grand Master Hoskinson was to have
received the trowel upon completion of the cornerstone ceremony.
Worshipful Master Artz, prominent local citizen, in true Masonic
fashion provided a "substitute" for the trowel and retained the
original for the lodge.
