The unfortunate loss of our Masonic buildings continues unabated. The latest fatality of our loss in membership is the Scottish Rite Valley of Moline, Illinois. The Valley was the last in Illinois to be chartered by the NMJ, between 1924 and 1927. Built and furnished for $450,000, the Cathedral was dedicated May 20th, 1930, the year following the start of the Great Depression.
It's just been put on the market for sale.
