Join us for a docent-led tour of the art and architecture of the House of the Temple– the headquarters of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, Southern Jurisdiction. Modeled after the ancient Persian tomb of Mausolus, the temple is rich in history and decadent in its architecture, providing visitors with a fascinating spectacle.
The House of the Temple is an historic building, yet almost all places on the tour are accessible. That being said, there are some parts of the tour that are only accessible by stairs.
Please meet at Iona, 4125 Albemarle St. NW, at 10 am; we will leave at 10:00 am for our 11 am tour. There is some parking in the lot underneath the building and ample street parking. We are located one block west of the Tenleytown Metro stop.
We plan to find an inexpensive place to dine close to the building after the tour, so prepare to join us for lunch! If you do not wish to join us for lunch, you may depart on your own after the tour.
