The cornerstone for
this Masonic masterpiece was set by William Jennings Bryan in 1922.
Its Egyptian style reflects the popularity of King Tut's tomb, which
was discovered the previous year. Early elements of art deco are also
visible. The auditorium seats 1,500 people, and a large
fills one side of the building. This screen shows how the building
might have looked at its dedication in 1924.
