Breathing new life into this majestic building
The Historic Masonic Temple is an architectural gem in the heart of Bay City, MI. For over 100 years it served as the home to the Joppa Lodge Masons, until 2005 when it was purchased by the Bay Arts Council. Today, the building is owned by the Friends of the Historic Masonic Temple who are dedicated to the mission of preserving and restoring the building while working to establish a community school for the arts within.
Once considered to be hidden in plain sight, The Historic Masonic Temple is quickly gaining recognition as a venue for MUSIC, MOVIES, THEATRE, and ARTS EDUCATION. Today the Friends organization is made up solely by volunteers and we’d love to welcome you in joining us. There are many ways to be involved including, but not limited to, being a volunteer, a donor, a programmer, or someone dedicated to the TLC of the building.
