List of Masonic buildings in the United States

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

List of Masonic buildings in the United States identifies the notable buildings in the United States that are currently used as meeting halls by Masonic lodges, Grand Lodges or other Masonic bodies. (For a list of notable buildings that historically were Masonic meeting halls, but have subsequently been re-purposed to non-Masonic use, see: List of former Masonic buildings in the United States) Many of the buildings were purpose built to house Masonic meetings and ritual activities. In other cases, Masonic bodies converted existing landmark buildings to Masonic use.[1]

All of the buildings listed have received landmark status, either by being listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) or by various State or City preservation agencies.

Massachusetts[edit]

Masonic Temple at Tremont St. and Temple Place, Boston, 1856. St. Paul's Church is on the left.

Boston has been the site of several significant Masonic buildings.[16]

  • In 1830, the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts bought land on Tremont Street to build a Masonic Temple. A building was constructed on the site and dedicated in 1832, but initially could not be owned by the Grand Lodge because of legal limitations on the value of real estate that the Grand Lodge could hold. Masons used the Masonic Temple for meetings until 1858, when the building was sold to the U.S. government for use as a courthouse.[17] The building lent its name to the Temple School, established by Bronson Alcott, which was housed in the building during the 1830s. The 1832 Masonic Temple, located at the corner of a street named Temple Place, also held a concert hall[17] and was the site of many public lectures by Ralph Waldo Emerson, including his reading of The Transcendentalist in 1842.[18][19] Following its sale to the government, it housed a courthouse until 1885.[17]
  • Beginning in 1859, Boston's Masons occupied a building at the corner of Tremont and Boylston Streets that was known as Winthrop House, and that was rededicated as "Freemason's Hall" in December 1859. That building was destroyed by fire in April 1864. A grand new Masonic Temple building, designed by Merrill G. Wheelock, was built in its place on the same site and dedicated in 1867.[16][20][21]

The 24th St. building is primarily dedicated to lodge meeting rooms, including the 1200-seat Grand Lodge Room and a dozen other Lodge Rooms, all elaborately ornamented.
