At the heart of the world's largest Masonic Temple is the Asylum of the Knights Templar, a stone chapel modeled after Westminster Abbey. And like many of the over 1,000 rooms inside Detroit's magnificent Masonic Temple, it has a few secrets.
On May 8, 2014, explore this magnificent and mysterious building at Preservation Detroit's annual spring benefit and meeting, held in the Asylum chapel at the Masonic Temple. Enjoy a tour of some of the Temple's eclectic and intricately symbolic lodge rooms, theaters, and ballrooms and learn about the history of George Mason's architectural masterwork. Hear from Preservation Detroit's board of directors and community partners about our advocacy efforts in the Lower Cass Corridor during a time of tremendous change.
Food, drinks, and music served. Cash bar. Silent auction items include Rodriguez tickets.
Monitored, fenced parking adjacent to the rear of the building is included.
Our largest benefit and membership meeting supports our ongoing efforts to promote, protect, and preserve Detroit's outstanding cultural and architectural heritage, of which the magnificent Masonic Temple is an inextricable part. Please join us.
