Inscription.  The Masonic Temple was dedicated on June 11, 1929 and served as a meeting place for several Masonic Lodges for nearly three decades. The building, constructed by J.V. McNeil, was designed by architect and engineer Arthur Lindley who was also notable as the architect behind Glendale's Alex Theatre. Caruso Affiliated acquired the building in early 2015, fifty years after the last Masons' meeting adjourned. The Caruso team expended tremendous effort over a 9-month period to complete the demolition of the non-historic elements and completely renovate and restore the building to the beauty and grandeur you see today. The historic Masonic Temple building has been repurposed and its interiors modernized, allowing it to resume its stature not only as an iconic architectural centerpiece of Brand Boulevard, but also as a symbol of revitalization for the city which its residents and future generations can look to with pride. (Marker Number 15.)
