WEBSTER GROVES TEMPLE BUILDING   

    This historic building is located at 12 E. Lockwood Avenue, next to City Hall in the heart of Old Webster Community.  Construction on this building began in 1916 and was completed in the spring of 1921.  It stands on the site of the original meeting place of Webster Groves Lodge #84, formed in 1896.  The original cornerstone was laid by the Rabboni Royal Arch Masons of Webster Groves.  A Greek Revival style addition was added on to the front, in 1961.     

    Through the decades, this building was, and continues to be regularly used by the public as a meeting/dance hall and currently houses a full-time daycare facility and youth recreation room in the basement.  It is also currently the home of 8 Masonic bodies (1 “Blue” lodge, 1 Royal Arch chapter, 1 Council chapter, 1 Grotto, 2 White Shrine chapters and 2 youth groups).  These bodies all support national and community charities, alike.    

    The building is undergoing a needed restoration effort which is expected to be complete by its 100th Anniversary, to ensure it stands in the community for another century.

To help with the restoration of this historic building, please take part in any of our upcoming events - bring some friends or make some new ones ... All are invited!

    Rental:  This is a large 4 story facility (elevator between floors & handicap access) with a full kitchen, 200 person dining room, stage, and parquet dance floor.  The by-laws have changed to allow alcohol making this a prime venue for your next big event in Webster Groves, VERY reasonable rates.   Click here for a Facility Rental Request, or here for Rental Rules.  Please call us for rates and availability.
