Point of Interest Details

Early 20th-century design made use of many revival motifs, but the Egyptian Revival style, as seen in the Masonic Temple, is rare in Ithaca. Built in 1926 by local architects Arthur Gibb and Ornan Waltz, it features "battered" (wider at the base) framing around the door. Despite its massive appearance, the exterior is a thin limestone veneer attached to a metal frame - a new technology at the time.
