In the 1880’s The Masonic Lodge purchased the building and added a second story. The Masons moved out of the building around 1921 into the Old Alhambra Theater building across the street.


Both buildings were demolished during several redevelopment projects in Redwood City in late 1990’s which brought a new City Hall to Downtown Redwood City. Progress has taken the Hilton and Titus Blacksmith Shop-Redwood City Circa 1859 but has given a world-class City Hall in its’ place.
