Flint in Genesee County, Michigan — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Many of Flint´s most prominent citizens have been Masons. The city´s "new" Masonic temple was dedicated in 1911 with great fanfare. Since then the building has been the site of many Masonic and civic events. Non-Masonic groups also held regular meetings at the temple. The Flint Old Newsboys held its organizational meeting here in 1924. In 1947 the Battiste family opened the Temple Dining Room, which became a popular restaurant and venue for benefit dinners.
