Description

The Jefferson Masonic Temple is one of just a few remaining active Masonic Temples in the city limits of Chicago. Originally home to the Providence Lodge, the building eventually became the meeting place for several different Masonic Lodges concurrently. It played an important role in the history of Jefferson Park. Now absorbed into King Oscar Lodge, the building is owned by a nonprofit, the Jefferson Masonic Temple Association. The building was rededicated in 2012 after significant renovations that enhanced energy efficiency.
