Masonic Throwback Thursday - Winter Haven Masonic Temple

On February 1, 2021 the Brothers of Winter Haven Lodge No. 186 said their final goodbyes to their beloved Masonic temple on Avenue A SE which they called home for 60 years. Due to the economic conditions at the time including the cost of monthly utilities, property and building maintenance and insurance and the fact that the three story Masonic Temple was only being used two to three times a month, the difficult decision was made to sell the building and move to a new smaller location.

Bro. Rick Schwarz, an honorary member of Winter Haven did a walk through tour of the storied Masonic temple prior to the last Stated Communication, it originally appeared on this his YouTube channel and he has graciously given permission for it to be reposted on our district website.
