The Terre Haute Masonic Temple in Terre Haute, Indiana is a Classical Revival-style Masonic 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. 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. Hubbard serving as architect.

The second floor is dedicated to the Blue Lodge and Order of the Eastern Star and houses three lodge rooms, rest rooms and lounge area.

  • I was a little leary to take this tour. I was afraid it would be a stuffy don't touch anything, don't take pictures kind of place. I was delighted to be welcomed by down to earth friendly people. Jerry Burns gave us our tour and he was extremely knowledgeable and amusing. When I asked if I could take pictures he said absolutely. The building is beautifully kept. The furnishings are gorgeous. It was a great experience.
  • Had a tour, very beautiful. Would like to attend lodge one time up there
