About
The Terre Haute Masonic Temple in Terre Haute, Indiana is a building that ground was broken for in 1915, cornerstone was laid in 1916, and opened in 1917. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior in 1995.[1] The structure was commissioned by the Terre Haute Masonic Temple Association which was included one director from each of the following bodies that funded the building of the temple: Terre Haute Lodge No. 19, F&AM, Social Lodge No. 86 F&AM, Humboldt Lodge No. 42 F&AM, Euclid Lodge No. 573 F&AM, Terre Haute Chapter No. 11 R.A.M., Terre Haute Council No. 8 R. & S.M., Terre Haute Commandery No. 16 K.T. The Temple was built by A.W. Stoolman with Archie H.

The brothers were very welcoming and this Temple is an asset to Terre Haute. I have hosted several Indiana State University Homecoming parties here and they have a great space for an event with plenty of safe parking.

I read the reviews while here in Terre Haute went for a walk to have a look, from the outside it does look impressive would have enjoyed a moment to go inside but you have to call for an appointment. A lot of the buildings from the 1915-1920 these buildings are gone they have a few spots where you see the odd building but most has gone unfortunately.

Amazing Historical Building
Nov 2017 • Friends
This building is in my hometown, but this is the first time I had visited. I currently live in Indianapolis and went down for the re-dedication of the building for it's 100th anniversary. Prior to the ceremony, I was able to get a guided tour to learn of it's amazing architecture, history, and design for the various fraternal ceremonies. Don't pass up visiting this building if you are in the area.

My fraternal home!

Construction began on The Terre Haute Masonic Temple in 1916, and was dedicated in 1917. The Centennial Era of the building is upon us! A beautiful example of early 20th century architecture. Tours are available on request. The Temple is the home of Terre Haute Lodge, No. 19 (the oldest Lodge in Vigo County), Social Lodge, No. 86, Humboldt Lodge, No. 42, all three bodies of the Terre Haute York Rite, and Terre Haute Chapter, No. 43 (OES), as well as the former home of dozens of other Masonic bodies over the years. We invite all Brothers and those interested in Masonic History to visit our beautiful home!

Pageant Venue

Indiana Job's Daughters pageant was held her. While a small place it was great for a last minute move and allowed for plenty of space to socialize before and after pageant.
