A statute of George Washington in the main hall.
A replica of the Ark of the Covenant
We were in McLean for church business and when we passed the Masonic Temple we decided to take the opportunity and go on a tour. It is an impressive building with alot of symbolism and stands as a tribute to George Washington and other famous Masons.
George Washington and many influential men of that time period belonged to the Masons. The Masons are still an active group involved in charity work and it's members share a strong brotherhood. The little I know about them is because President Albright's grandfather was a very active member of the Masons and Shriners and loved this group. He was not a member of the Mormon church and this group was a big part of his life and very important to him. Because of grandpa Bud I have always had a great respect for the group.
