Masonic Temple Most Worshipful Grand Lodge

Completed in 1916 by the Black Masons of Florida, this six-story red brick structure serves as headquarters of the Masons of the State of Florida Grand East and the focal point for the Jacksonville black community's commercial and fraternal events. Designed by Earl Mark and Leeroy Sheftall, the architectural design reflects the works of both Louis Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright. The 1926 Negro Blue Book described it as, "one of the finest buildings in the world owned by Negroes."
