In 1912, the Canyada Lodge was the something to behold. It was built in La Grande, by Pierce County Prosecuting Attorney, John L. McMurray, for $92,500 — something like $2.1 million today.
In 1927 the grand lodge burned and only the ruins remain. Here are two shots of the ruins taken in 1989, along with a postcard of the short lived Canyada.
