South Side Masonic Temple

Abandoned since the mid-1980’s, the South Side Masonic Temple at 6400 S. Green commands a powerful presence in its mostly low-rise Englewood neighborhood.  An important neighborhood icon, it was identified by Preservation Chicago in 2004 as endangered.  Unfortunately, since that time, no action has been taken to preserve it or even stablize it, and the building is in worse shape than ever.
