The Masonic Temple in Salina, Kansas is a monumental Classical Revival-style building completed in 1927.[2] It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000.[1]

It is 125 by 170 feet (38 m × 52 m) in plan and is built of reinforced concrete. It is clad in limestone and marble. It was designed by Oklahoma City architect William T. Schmitt. Two years into its construction, the structure collapsed, and Schmitt was replaced by Isaac L. Zerbe.[2]
