About WI Scottish Rite Foundation

Our mission is to preserve our beautiful, living historical facility, along with its collections, for the benefit of the community.

Our Scottish Rite facility has long been considered a distinguished landmark in the Milwaukee and southeastern portion of Wisconsin. Built in 1889 as the Plymouth Congregational Church, its design included three of the City of Milwaukee's most prominent architects of the period, Edward T. Mix, and the architectural firm of Leenhouts and Guthrie.The original Romanesque style of brick trimmed with rock-faced limestone and the massive corner tower which was capped with a slate-covered conical roof were all kept in place. The architects matched the outside by staining the new brick to match the color of the adjacent weathered walls. Interior modifications were made and all interior paint finishes and wood stains were applied to match those of the original sections.
