Board of Directors
The Indianapolis Masonic Temple Association, Inc.
The Association is the 501(c)(2) not-for-profit corporation which operates and maintains Freemasons' Hall on a day-to-day basis. It was created in April 1905 by the Lodges and other bodies then resident in the old Indianapolis Masonic Temple with a mandate to find a location for, and then to build, a new Masonic Temple in Indianapolis. The new Temple would replace an older structure which was crumbling and located in what had become a very noisy location at the corner of Washington and Capitol Streets. This creation was providential, for in May 1906 a fire destroyed the top floor and roof of the Temple, and resulted in catastrophic water damage to the rest of the building. At that point the IMTA began looking for a new home, with the happy result of the dedication in 1909 of our current lovely building at the corner of North and Illinois Streets.
Prior to 1999, the building was owned jointly by the stockholding constituent bodies which are resident in the building, and by the Grand Lodge of Indiana, F. & A.M. Since a reorganization in 1999 which was completed in 2004, all remaining stockholding bodies and the Grand Lodge of Indiana relinquished their stock to the Indianapolis Masonic Temple Association, Inc., which is now the sole owner of the building. The Board of the Association consists of five representatives chosen by and from the eight remaining stockholding bodies, and five representatives appointed by the Grand Master of Masons in Indiana. Its officers are elected annually from among the five representatives of the stockholding bodies.
