    So what are these children supposed to do? Watch adults debate city politics while their schools fall apart? The revenue from TIF districts alone could finance teacher pensions.

  • CJC Homeowner since 2000

    The answer is always the same, raid another city program to pay for the failed management of our elected officials. And, unless there is roughly $2,000,000,000.00 in TIF funds out there, it aint happening. Yes, Chicago is in arears of over $2trillion in pension funding. Good luck with that!

Ask Geoffrey: The History of Freemasonry in Chicago

For starters, the Logan Square Chapter temple (2451 N. Kedzie Blvd.) built in 1921 today houses the Armitage Baptist Church.

Right across the street (2408 N. Kedzie Blvd.) is the Stan Mansion, also built in 1921. It was built as home to a chapter of the Knights Templar, a Christian branch of Freemasons (the mansion’s façade is emblazoned with the Knights Templar’s cross and crown insignia). Today it’s an events venue.

There is a really cool looking building on the northwest corner of Byron and Damen. I believe it used to be a Masonic temple. Can you give some history on it?

The building at 3900 N. Damen Ave., originally called the Constellation Masonic Temple, was built in 1915 as the home of Sincerity Lodge. After the Sincerity Lodge merged with other Masonic chapters and moved to the suburbs, the building was reconfigured as loft apartments.

The Pullman Masonic Temple (614 E 113th St.) now serves as the offices of the Historic Pullman District Foundation.

The Auburn Park Masonic Temple on 78th Street and Union Avenue is today a charter high school.

Also in the Ravenswood neighborhood, what was once a Masonic temple (1521 W. Wilson Ave.) is now the American Indian Center of Chicago.

One last note: there is one temple in Chicago is still used for Freemasons. The Jefferson Masonic Temple (5418 W. Gale St.) was built in 1911 and is now home to 12 Chicago lodges. It's the oldest building in Chicago still dedicated to Freemasonry.
