1. History of the Masonic Club. Built in 1924 on land that was originally donated by Grand Master Alexander Keith, brewer and Canadian politician, the Masonic Hall is a neoclassical red brick building located in the heart of old Moncton. Architect J. W. Frazer and contractor Ambrose Wheeler used Greek inspired elements to create a clean and geometrically sound structure that was worthy of the Masons. The interior of the Masonic Hall closely follows the traditional layout, design and décor dictated by the Masons. In 1996, the Masonic Hall was designated a Heritage Property.

. The Masonic Temple was designated as a local historic place for its Neoclassical architecture and interior design that follows Masonic specifications. When the Keith Lodge and the Tweedie Lodge amalgamated in 1921 to form Moncton Masonic Temple Limited, a new structure was designed to accommodate the increase in membership. Work was completed in 1924 on the property under Superintendent of Work, Duncan Jonah. In 1940, an additional story was added as part of the restoration after a fire.
