From Michigan Historic Sites Online:

''The Detroit Masonic Temple was built both as a lodge hall complex for forty-seven fraternal orders and as a civic center for the City of Detroit. As a result, it is comprised of four distinct structures that are unified by a single exterior architectural treatment. Basically, the Temple is composed of the Shrine Club, a ten-story tower, the Ritual Building, a fourteen-story tower, and the Auditorium Building, a long, low, seven-story wing that connects the two towers. All are flat-roofed structures sheathed in Indiana limestone and unified by the same austere vertical English Gothic architectural treatment. The fourth part of the structure is the vast, three-level, subterranean entertainment and recreational complex. The present Gothic-style building, designed by architect George D. Mason, was completed in 1926. The interior features ornate molding, stenciling, and paneling, much of which was completed by Anthony DiLorenzo Studios of New York.''   Read more »
