“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.”

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.
