This one-of-a-kind building was originally built in the 1920s as a monument to the ambitions of the fraternity. It was designed by Charles A. Weatherhogg, and was one of the largest structures on the Fort Wayne skyline. When it was constructed, over 10,000 members filtered through for various meetings, dances, dinners, and fraternal functions. It boasts four separate lodge rooms called the Corinthian Room, Ionic Room, Egyptian Room, and Colonial Room. They're still the largest lodge rooms in the state.

    This historic venue is the most beautiful in Fort Wayne

    Save Maumee appreciates Freemason’s Hall supporting our local nonprofit. The venue is exquisite and one of the most beautiful and original landmarks in Fort Wayne. The tours were knowledgable and insightful of the period it was built. I would recommend this for any event that you wanted to be classy.

    Magical evening

    This location is absolutely beautiful! I need a wedding do-over so that I can have my reception here! I attended a fundraiser event here and it was amazing. The natural decor of the room was beautiful, the staff were so helpful and polite, and it was just enjoyable all around.

    Freemason's Hall's reply:

    We love every event. We treat them as if they are our family. No event big or small is treated with any less than any . We feel everyone is to receive our full attention and respect.
