This historic landmark was built by Freemasons in 1926. It was originally designed to be an upscale retirement home for Freemasons across Wahington. The building was constructed on a ridge offering magnificent views of the Puget Sound, and has been used as an event center over the decades. It’s truly an impressive feat of architecture and is said to be haunted by a ghost named George.
