26 Portland Masonic Temple on Congress Street in Portland, Maine

The attractive Beaux-Arts design of the Portland Masonic Temple helped get the 1911 building named on the National Register of Historic Places. Yet the facade belies the incredible interior. Imagine a Scottish Rite Reading Room encircled by dark hardwood paneling, a fireplace and lit with a chandelier and sconces. Or The Armory surrounded by York Rite Masons’ cubicles, glass windows by Tiffany and a colonial U.S. flag. Most impressive is the two-story ballroom named Corinthian Hall because of the numerous columns. Since 2013, this lodge has been available for special events and is a popular wedding venue.
