Historic Ipswich site gets facelift


August 26, 2020

Construction workers replaced the roof at the former Tiger Post earlier this month. Work continues inside.

The former Ipswich Masonic Temple was added to the National Register of Historic Places in June this year. The building, built in 1922, has had several purposes, the last was as home to the Tiger Post after-school program.

Todd Hettich acquired the former Tiger Post and has been remodelling the facility.

The roof has been replaced and they have been busy inside also.

"The lower level is almost complete," said Hettich. "We are planning to make that an arcade/game room to be called Tiger Zone," he said. It will be a place to rent for community functions like birthday parties. The lower level has a full kitchen.

"Work also continues on the main floor," Hettich said. The plans call for a beverage bar, table seating and a full kitchen. They also plan to rent out that level for functions like banquets, parties or weddings.

"Depending on how things go, we may perhaps open that area up on the weekends," he said.

The "new" name of the historical facility will be "1922."

Hettich said they hope to be fully functional in the spring.
