Scottish Rite "Town Hall"

Another North Broad treasure lost to the parking craze of the 1980's was the Scottish Rite Temple or Town Hall at Broad and Race, built in 1926 and designed by Horace W. Castor. The bizarre, stone walls of the secret society unceremoniously met the wrecking ball in 1983 to make way for Parkway Corporation's poorly designed garage and headquarters.
