History of the Temple

 

Located at 835 Locust Street in the City of Long Beach and constructed in 1927, the Masonic Temple was the headquarters of a major social institution, whose members included many prominent citizens of Long Beach. The building served as the headquarters for York Rite, an important fraternal order, and was used by many other service clubs of Long Beach as well.

The Greek Revival architectural style was one of a number of period revival styles popular during the 1920s. The severe Greek classical temple facade of this building invokes memories of classical antiquity.

The building contained a number of large assembly halls typical of a fraternal social order. In this building, each haIl was decorated in a different exotic revival style: Egyptian, Roman, etc. The building also contained a fully equipped theater.

The architects, Parker O. Wright and Francis H. Gentry, had distinguished careers in the City of Long Beach. They designed the Scottish Rite Temple, the First Methodist Church at Third and Linden, thirteen Long Beach schools and twenty-five schools in Southern California, and many residences and businesses. Due to its scale and its imposing architectural features, it stands out in its community as a unique and monumental building, and as such represents an established and familiar visual feature of its neighborhood.
