The impressive 125 year old Masonic Temple in downtown St. Johns is FOR SALE, in the heart of downtown in the oldest city in North America. This elegant Victorian-era gem stands prominently and regally at 6 Cathedral Street. It is a 3-story 12,000 square foot structure inspired by Classic Revival design, boasting Corinthian columns, towers, pilasters, pediments, and a heavy cornice belt course. Two of the three floors are completely renovated for its current use by Spirit of Newfoundland Productions for theatre, dining and events. It has an impressive, elegant foyer, a fully functional bar, a formal tasting room, and a commercial industrial kitchen capable of serving hundreds of guests. The basement features numerous private offices, group meeting rooms, change rooms and prop storage. The stone wall/staircase leading to the entrance was rebuilt and refurbished in 2019. The massive retaining wall with beautiful wrought iron railings on the buildings western front is one of the oldest in the City. It was restored less than 10 years ago and remains the responsibility of the City of St. Johns. The interior is equally impressive with original woodwork and trim, ornate ceiling details, decorative plasterwork and the original main staircase fully preserved. On two operational floors, all plumbing, electrical, and mechanical have been updated. The buildings façade is currently being restored and other permits are already City Hall approved.

In 1894, Sir William Whiteway, longest serving prime minister of the colony of Newfoundland, laid the original cornerstone of the building. Some of the main historic elements include iconic Masonic emblems, two time capsules, a chamber of reflection, a pipe organ, and more. The Masonic Temple is a designated HERITAGE STRUCTURE by the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador. (id:21083) Back
