CMG 2018 International Summit Optional Saturday Tour of the Masonic Temple
A Brief Overview
“The Masonic Temple in Philadelphia was constructed in 1873. It has been called one of the great “wonders” of the Masonic world. Adorned with some of the finest artifacts of Freemasonry and magnificent Lodge rooms based on themes of the ancient architectural world, the Masonic Temple connects us with our past by outwardly displaying our Masonic traditions and values.” — The Masonic Temple in Philadelphia
This architectural wonder is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and designated a National Historic Landmark as one of the most elaborate examples of Masonic architecture.
Windrim and Herzog
Designed by James H. Windrim with a Normandy cathedral-like exterior, construction took five years and was completed in 1873. The interiors were designed by George Herzog, spanning a nearly 20-year process. Each room is decorated in a different historically accurate style featuring ornate wood details, hand carved furniture, paintings, and pilasters.
