The Masonic Temple is an historic building in Muncie, Indiana. It was built between 1923-1926 and designed by well-known local architects Cuno Kibele and Wave Garrard in the Gothic Revival style. It is a big building and was considered an important achievement for the city at the time of its completion. It was also considered at the time as the largest York Rite Masonic Temple in the world. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. It now houses the Cornerstone Center for the Arts, which provides arts programming to the community.
The Masonic Temple was built in 1926 and was the third building belonging to the Masons in Muncie. The Masons founded their first lodge in 1842. Over time, the numbers of members grew and they decided to construct the building. It contained the city's first large public theater venue. The Muncie Civic Theater was located in the building between 1931-1961. Over the years, numerous other arts and civic organizations used the building. By 1999, community leaders took over the building as the number of Mason members decreased. Eventually, two organizations—the Community Civic Center and Muncie Center for the Arts—housed in the building merged to form the Cornerstone Center for the Arts in 2005, which remains in operation today. Five Masonic groups continue to use the building for meetings and other gatherings. The Masonic-Community Building Foundation was formed in 1989 to manage restoration and repair efforts.
