WEBSTER GROVES TEMPLE BUILDING   

Our historic building is located at 12 East Lockwood Avenue in the heart of Old Webster, next to City Hall. Plans began in 1916. Construction started in 1919 and was completed in the Spring of 1923. In 1961 the front of the building was added (designed). It stands on the site of the original meeting place of Webster Groves Lodge No. 84 (The Old Pettus Home). The original cornerstone was laid by Rabboni Chapter #131 Royal Arch Masons.

Our beautiful building is undergoing much needed renovation that is expected to be completed by its Centennial celebration in 2023. The beautiful memorial brick walkway was completed in the Spring of 2020. Bricks are still available for purchase and are a lovely way to memorialize or honor a loved one.

Throughout the decades our building has accommodated community and civic events as well as meetings, weddings, graduation parties and family gatherings. Our building is home to seven Masonic organizations – one Blue Lodge, one Royal Arch Chapter, one Council of Cryptic Masons, two White Shrines, and two youth organizations – Job’s Daughters International for girls 11-21 and DeMolay International for boys 11-21. These organizations support various national and community charities. Our building is also home to Here We Grow a full-time daycare facility housed on our lower level. We also have a recreation room on the lower level for the use of our youth organizations.

Our facility is handicap accessible with an elevator and wheelchair lift at the parking lot entrance. The banquet room, with seating for 200, was recently redecorated with wedding receptions in mind. We have a full kitchen, a parquet dance floor and a stage for the wedding party or the band. These amenities along with VERY reasonable rates make this a prime location for your special day. If your wedding had to be postponed because of Covid-19, or if your venue does not have your chosen date available, we invite you to call us to check our availability and arrange a visit to see if our facilities are right for you. We are also an ideal location for graduation parties, baby or wedding showers or other family gatherings. Click here for a Facility Rental Request, or here for Rental Rules
