Masonic Temple - 6 Cathedral Street
SPIRIT OF NEWFOUNDLAND
Open for Bookings
Spirit of Newfoundland is more than delighted to announce we are the proud owners of the historic Masonic Temple in downtown St. John’s. Our venue is an elegant and accessible performing arts facility for the whole community. We are now taking bookings for all types of events.
The Masonic Temple is a historic and cultural treasure majestically positioned on a hill overlooking nearby churches and the Courthouse. Visible from almost anywhere in downtown St. John’s, this 116 year old heritage structure is architecturally impressive with its neo Classical stylings boasting many towers with pediments, beautifully carved bricks, free-standing columns with globes, pilasters and detailed cornices. The interior is equally impressive with exceptional woodwork, ornate ceilings and pillars, an exceptional pipe organ and decorative plaster and archways. As the home of the internationally known fraternal Freemasons from 1896 - 2007, it is recognized as the largest brick fraternal meeting hall in the province.
While many people are familiar with the main floor of the Masonic Temple, the upper floor is closed to regular traffic, being used only by the Masons who have been meeting there since it opened in 1896. That floor will soon be open to the public after some minor renovations.
Please call 579-3023 for a viewing or more information.
Available for Private Functions:
