Morrison Masonic Lodge #76  was chartered on August 26, 1823. The Lodge was named for James Morrison, an American Revolution veteran and founder of the Great Lodge of Kentucky, A number of the members of the lodge were part of the Civil War and when the war ended became city and state leaders, judges, and politicians.  In December 1862, during the raid by Confederate General John Hunt Morgan, Morrison Lodge was struck by at least one cannonball. During that time it was used as a place to house prisoners and, some say, as a field hospital for the wounded. 

Sometime around 1911, fire caused tremendous damage to the Morrison Lodge and a new building was constructed on the same site in 1913. This building is a historic Arts and Crafts-style Masonic building. It is a three-story brick building built on a stone foundation. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988. 

The building is reported to have Paranormal activity. It is said to have a few spirits that occupy the building. During the 1940s, three deaths took place at Morrison Lodge. One of the deaths was a member of the Lodge, who collapsed during a ceremony of an apparent heart attack. The other two deaths were of women. One of them died in a dentist's chair (who worked in the building) when she succumbed to an allergic reaction to anesthetic and the other woman died of a heart attack. It is thought that those deaths – and the Civil War – created the haunting that plagues the building. 

Morrison Masonic Lodge No. 76 has appeared on an episode of "The Haunted Collector" (YouTube Video LINK). It has been visited by several paranormal investigators, including individuals from Ghost Hunters, Ghost Hunters International (GHI), Destination Truth, and Paranormal State.
