Scottish Rite Temple
Savannah, GA 31401
The Scottish Rite Temple has stood in downtown Savannah for over 85 years and is a historic landmark to the Masonry. In 1896 the Masonic Temple Association was incorporated and the land for the Masonic Center was purchased in November 1895 for the sum of $22,500.
The corner stone for the building was laid June 30, 1913. Because of financial difficulties the building was not completed until 1923. Although the building has been known as the Scottish Rite Temple for many years it has been home to all Masonry and is now known as the Scottish Rite Masonic Center.
This beautiful and unique building has an elaborate cornice and ornamental pilasters in the midsection. Also, notice the cravings towards the top of the building. The Emblems of Freemasonry are in the ornate doorway of the Masonic Center.
