The Masonic Building, (referred to by Montana State University as the Broadway III building) is a historic building in Billings, Montana that was built in 1910. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986 (under the name "Masonic Temple")[1]

Originally built by the local Masonic lodges as a meeting hall, the Masons outgrew it and moved to a new building. The old building was sold to Montana State University-Billings and today serves as its Urban Institute.[2]
