Ruin-Rainbow

Freemasons were among the first to advocate for the preservation of Fort Union, the site where two Masonic lodges had been founded. On January 23, 1929, the members of Chapman Lodge No. 2 at Las Vegas (one of the lodges which had its origins at Fort Union in 1862) selected a committee to "have Fort Union declared a national monument."
