Masonic Library & Museum of Indiana

by Christopher Hodapp


The enforced closure of all public facilities in the state during the COVID-19 pandemic gave me a little time to create a video teaser for the Masonic Library and Museum of Indiana

The April 2020 issue of Indianapolis Monthly magazine featured all of our capitol city’s great restaurants we can’t go visit until the restrictions are lifted. Such are the odd vicissitudes of magazine deadlines closing sometimes months in advance of actual publication.



The back page of the magazine always features an unusual artifact from around the City every month. April’s artifact was none other than the Masonic Library and Museum of Indiana’s unique folk art sculpture by nineteenth century Indiana Mason George S. Frank. It is shown in a beautiful, full-page photo by Tony Valainis with a description of the piece, complete with a few words from our director Mike Brumback.


For more about Brother Frank’s remarkable and complex sculpture,see this much longer article HERE.

Like nearly every other facility in Indiana, we have been forced to close during the duration of the pandemic. Normally, we are open to the public. When this all passes, please do stop in and see us on the 5th floor of the Indianapolis Masonic Temple at 525 N. Illinois Street in Indianapolis. With any luck, we are anticipating reopening sometime in June.
