South Boston Walking Tour

F: The old Masonic Temple building
441 Main Street

Most of the buildings downtown are two-story height which was typical of the turn-of-the-century commercial structures. A notable exception to this is on the southeast corner of Main and North Main, 441 Main Street - the old Masonic Temple Building, formerly A.R.Via Jewelers.

It is distinguished by its arched openings and its somewhat irregular corner site contributes greatly to its distinctive appearance. Its third floor still contains a large Masonic room with all its secret symbols.
