Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Albert Pike Masonic Center is the headquarters for the Masonic fraternity in Arkansas. Designed by architects George Mann and Eugene Stern, it was dedicated on May 12, 1924. Mann was considered the “dean of Arkansas architects” having designed several important Arkansas buildings, including the Arkansas State Capitol and the Arlington Hotel in Hot Springs. The building is a monumental three-story structure in the Neo-Classical Revival style, lined on its front facade with nineteen Greek Ionic columns.
With seating for 774 in the auditorium, 450 in the formal dining room, and several other unique spaces, the Center is perfect for banquets, receptions, performing arts, and many other events. The building is truly an Arkansas treasure that we wish to share with everyone.
Now, for the first time in the buildings 96 year history, the beautifully elegant space known as Crawford Hall has been made available to the public year round. At approximately 3,300 square feet, Crawford Hall stands to be another majestic and versatile space that takes its guests on an unforgettable journey back through the roaring 20's.
