Holidays in the Mansion 2013 Preview
See our Upcoming Events Page for Dates, Hours, and a listing of very special holiday events.
Since the turn of the 20th Century the Racine Masonic Center has been home to a growing number of Masonic Organizations in Racine, Wisconsin. The Masonic Lodges have been an important part of Racine since 1848 when Racine was incorporated as a City. Many City Officials along with many city residents were part of the Masonic Organization.
The Mansion itself was the home of a local business man, Henry S Durand, who built the this Grand Residence in 1856. The Mansion was deeded to the Masons in 1922 and in 1923 the grand lodge rooms along with dining facilities were added to the back of the Mansion on the Wisconsin Avenue side of the complex.
The Racine Masonic Temple Association and all Masonic Member Groups invite you to take a trip back in time and visit us by appointment or at any one of our grand annual celebrations. Those celebrations include the famous ”Haunted Ghost Walk” (October), and “Holidays in the Mansion” (late November, early December).
Guided Historical Tours available by appointment.
