The Masonic Temple, Grand Island, Nebraska
Built in 1925, the 7 story Masonic Temple in downtown Grand Island, Nebraska was run by the Masons and various other Masonic related organizations (Job’s Daughters, Knights Templar) until the Grande Venues acquired it in 2006. GVI is currently renovating it for public use. Plans include a dinner theatre and bar on the 6th and 7th floors, apartments, condominiums, commercial office space, a Cigar bar and a banquet facility on the 4th floor. GVI also obtained a grant from the CRA in Grand Island to explore fire safety issues. The corporate offices for Murders R Us and Grande Venues, Inc., other companies are located on the 5th floor.
