The Lodge of Unanimity was established in Lyttelton in 1851. This building was designed in 1878 by Benjamin Woolfield Mountfort, who was a member of the lodge. In 1896-8 a refectory, designed by B W Mountfort's son Cyril, was added. In September 2011 it was reported that the building had been granted $300,000 funding towards its restoration through the Canterbury Earthquake Heritage Building Fund administered by Canterbury Territorial Authorities, the New Zealand Historic Places Trust and the Ministry for Culture and Heritage.
