Scottish Rite Cathedral is one of everyone’s favorites, isn’t it? Visitors to the city who make their way to the 600 block of North Meridian will inevitably inquire about this gorgeous limestone structure. Or, I caught this vantage from the Cultural Trail!
What can you tell them? Here
- Building completed in 1929 (good thing they started on this before the Stock Market tanked!)
- It’s the largest Scottish Rite cathedral in the world
- It’s a Masonic organization (might explain why the Masonic Temple is across the street?)
- Designed by one of their members, George F. Schreiber
- Cost $2.5 Million dollars
- Architectural style: Tudor design with Gothic ornamentation
- Check out the changing colors of light that decorate it at night–just lovely!
It’s one of those buildings one never tires of looking at..
Have been inside for events with my late parents who were members; also ate at ndy Anna’s cafe there; a good lunch!
