In 2014, after 90 years of being veiled in mystery and virtually unknown to the general public, the Albert Pike Masonic Center was opened up to the entire State of Arkansas to rent for weddings, fundraisers, non-profit organizations, the performing arts as well as many other usages. It has quickly become one of the most beautiful, majestic, versatile and affordable event venues in the State.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Albert Pike Masonic Center is the headquarters for the Masonic fraternity in Arkansas. Designed by architects George Mann and Eugene Stern, it was dedicated on May 12, 1924. Mann was considered the “dean of Arkansas architects” having designed several important Arkansas buildings, including the Arkansas State Capitol and the Arlington Hotel in Hot Springs. The building is a monumental three-story structure in the Neo-Classical Revival style, lined on its front facade with nineteen Greek Ionic columns.
With seating for 774 in the auditorium, 450 in the formal dining room, and several other unique spaces, the Center is perfect for banquets, receptions, performing arts, and many other events.
Now for the first time in the buildings storied history, Crawford Hall is available to the public year round. Located on the north end of the building, Crawford Hall is housed in the Albert Pike Masonic Center but is literally a city block away from the other rentable spaces on the south end of the building. This beautiful space is approximately 3,300 square feet and is great for weddings and wedding receptions!
The building is truly an Arkansas treasure that we wish to share with everyone.

Perfect day! Didn’t need an overwhelming amount of decor. Reception hall is amazing by itself. Bridal suite was so useful. Great space for a large wedding at a great price.Sent on 12/08/2017

We held my daughter's wedding ceremony and reception here with over 300 guests, which was an important need for us. The facility is large and has almost anything you would need in a wedding venue. We loved the reception area with access to the big kitchen for the caterer of our choice. We also enjoyed the areas to accommodate the wedding party getting ready. I would recommend this to anyone. They told us we probably wouldn't need a microphone because of the acoustics but we wished we would have had a microphone.Sent on 01/23/2016
