History

Our historic Scottish Rite Masonic Center was built in several phases over many years, first as a church and then as the home for the Minneapolis Scottish Rite. Construction of the original Fowler Methodist Church was initiated on this site in Minneapolis in 1890. As the church expanded in the mid 1890s additional space was needed to serve the growing congregation. Construction of the main auditorium was begun in 1895 and completed by 1906. The Minneapolis Scottish Rite purchased the building when the Fowler Church merged with the Hennepin United Methodist Church. The Scottish Rite took possession of the building and established its new home here on January 1, 1915. The previous home for the Scottish Rite in Minneapolis was the Masonic building that is still located at 6th and Hennepin in Downtown Minneapolis. That building is now the home of the Hennepin Center for the Arts. The impressive Romanesque Revival architecture of our Scottish Rite Masonic Center represents the only combined work of 2 major Minnesota architects, Warren H. Hayes (the original sanctuary - now our Red Room) and Harry Wild Jones (the new sanctuary in 1906, now our main auditorium). Our building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. Highlight of the interior of the building:
