House of the Temple Historic Preservation Foundation, Inc.

House of the Temple

The House of the Temple Historic Preservation Foundation, Inc. was created by the Supreme Council, 33°, to maintain, support, and enhance the House of the Temple as an architectural landmark and as the national headquarters of the Southern Jurisdiction of Freemasonry.

The Temple itself is truly architecturally striking, but what is more important is that it stands as a testament to our ideals of human progress, liberty of thought, freedom of conscience, and equal rights. The Temple’s libraries and museums house extensive antique book and artifact collections, many of which need specialized attention in order to ensure preservation.

It is the duty and goal of the House of the Temple Preservation Foundation to ensure that these treasures last for generations to come, and that through them and our magnificent headquarters, our history is preserved, values communicated, and legacy remains eternal.

To help us continue forward with our necessary multi-million dollar renovation and rehabilitation plan, please support the Rebuilding the Temple Campaign which benefits the House of the Temple Historic Preservation Foundation.
