Built in the 1920s as the largest Masonic Temple in the world, the Detroit Masonic Temple is an architectural marvel, encapsulating the magnificence and grandeur that Freemasonry had reached in its prime. Towering at 14 stories, the building contains several grand and intimate spaces, including two actively used theaters, a chapel, eight lodge rooms, two ballrooms, dining rooms, various office rooms, and a 17,500 square foot drill hall. The building is a joy to tour and feels like a glimpse into the glorious past.
