About the Scottish Rite Masonic Center

Scottish Rite Masonic CenterA Stunning Denver Venue
The Scottish Rite Masonic Center (SRMC) is proud to be a part of Colorado history, from its earliest period up to the present day.

In 1891 the Scottish Rite bodies raised $50,000 to purchase a church at 19th and Welton Streets, but the economic panic of 1893-94 cost many of the members their fortune and the heavily mortgaged building was lost to foreclosure. In 1909 the lots at East 14th Avenue and Grant Street were purchased, but construction was not authorized until 1922.

Prominent architect William Norman Bowman was selected to design the new home for the Denver Scottish Rite. Born in New York in 1868, Bowman had studied under Elijah E. Meyers (the architect who designed the Colorado State Capitol Building) and settled in Denver in 1910. He won numerous commissions to design such structures as the Mountain States Telephone buiding, Park Hill Methodist Church, the Colburn and Cosmopolitan hotels, and Cole and Beyers junior high schools. Our present building, now known as the Scottish Rite Masonic Center, was dedicated on May 14, 1925.

Today, the building serves as not only the home of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry for the Denver metropolitan area, but as a community resource and is available for corporate and private functions.

Support the SRMC
So how can you help support this stunning Denver venue? The Scottish Rite Masonic Center currently has an endowment fund and three programs that you participate in that are both fun and easy.

SRMC Endowment Fund
All donations made to the Scottish Rite Masonic Center Endowment Fund are tax-deductible and help to establish a principle balance to provide financial support in perpetuity. More importantly, the endowment fund ensures every dollar donated will be directed to maintain this beautiful and historic Denver landmark.
