"To preserve the reputation of the Fraternity unsullied must be your constant care."

“The Masonic system represents a stupendous and beautiful fabric, founded on universal purity, to rule and direct our passions, to have faith and love in God, and charity toward man.”
— William Howard Taft

New Minnesota Masonic Heritage Center Now Open

Minnesota Masonic Charities has opened its brand spankin' new $22 million heritage center in Bloomington on the grounds of the Minnesota Masonic Home. The facility has a 443-seat auditorium, a lodge room, museum, library, conference space and a dining facility with a full catering kitchen.

Impressive new Masonic buildings are rarely erected these days. With a few notable exceptions, sadly, most new fraternal buildings anymore are little more than a pole barn shed in a cornfield. So it's a pleasure to see a Masonic organization building a new fraternal landmark with the kind of love, vision and detail that were the hallmarks of our predecessors. 

A 17 photo slide show can be seen HERE.
