Indianapolis Masonic Temple & Indiana Historic Landmarks Fdn. Tour Thursday 12/8

Members of the Indiana Landmarks Foundation will tour the historic Indianapolis Masonic Temple next Thursday, December 8th, from 5PM - 7PM. The tour is being held as part of their annual Holiday Open House program.

UPDATE: Please note that earlier I mistakenly posted that this event is open to the public. It is NOT. You must be a member of the Indiana Landmarks Foundation to participate.

Egyptian-themed Red Cross Room

Also known as Indiana Freemasons Hall, the temple was designed by Preston C. Rubush and Edgar O. Hunter, the architects responsible for other famed Indianapolis landmarks between 1905 and 1938, such as the Circle and Indiana Theaters (both still in use today), the Columbia Club, the Indiana School for the Deaf, and the former City Hall.

Not mentioned in the event listing is that the Masonic Library and Museum of Indiana will also be open for the evening on the 5th floor, displaying artifacts and telling the story of the fraternity in Indiana since its beginnings in 1818.

The open house is free for members of Indiana Landmarks. R.S.V.P. at indyhoh16.eventbrite.com
