Enjoy the company of Indiana Landmarks members, staff, and board at our Holiday Open House in a stunning historic setting.
The Indianapolis Masonic Temple, built in 1909, includes an auditorium and several recently restored rooms. You can also see the unrestored eighth-floor ballroom, and you must check out the Egyptian Room, a ceremonial space where sphinxes flank a throne-like chair, hieroglyphics surround the doorway, painted papyrus flowers and Egyptian figures. The craze for all things Egyptian started in the late eighteenth century and flared anew when archaeological finds came to light.
Rubush and Hunter, the architects responsible for the Circle and Indiana theaters and many other important landmarks, designed the neoclassical style building.
The open house is free for members of Indiana Landmarks, with our thanks for your support.
