The old Lehmer’s building in downtown Concord is now gone, and soon, other structures in the big block near the Masonic building on Galindo & Clayton Road/Concord Boulevard will be gone, too.
The Masonic building will be moved next to the historic Galindo House on Clayton Road (just across the street) within the next three years, and if it’s not moved within that time frame, the City of Concord can demolish the Masonic building.
Earlier this year, the City of Concord sold the Galindo House and Masonic building to the Concord Historical Society for $1 each, which included an agreement to move the Masonic building.
The Concord Historical Society’s master plans for the Galindo House and Masonic building will cost just over $2.5-million.
The Concord Redevelopment Agency owns all the property being demolished in the block around Galindo/Concord Blvd & Clayton Road, but as of right now, there are no plans to build anything.
Thanks to “Radar” for the photos of the demolition!
