The Masonic Temple in Atoka, Oklahoma is a historic building from 1915. Originally constructed as a meeting hall for a local area Masonic lodge, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1] The lodge now meets elsewhere in the town,[2] and today the building is a hospice.[3]

The building has stained glass windows in its third story, and is regarded as unique architecturally in its community. At the time of NRHP listing, it was regarded as a prime candidate for restoration.[4][5]
