Twillingate Masonic Lodge
Twillingate Masonic Lodge offers a unique example of Classically influenced vernacular architecture in a wooden building. The Classical Revival style is typical for Masonic Lodges. Classical elements of the structure, such as pedimented rain-caps, are intended as a visual link to the acclaimed ancient history of Freemasonry. It is topped by an ovoid dome, an Orientalist ornamentation not uncommon in Masonic buildings.
The stamped tin ceiling of the upstairs Lodge Room, imported from England at the time of construction in 1906, is ornately decorated with masonic symbols and the room is furnished with original furniture, some of which were made by the masons themselves. On entering the room, few are not immediately inspired.
Free tours are available from late June to late August each year, 9AM – 4 PM, Tuesday - Saturday. Special guided tours by Masons are available by request. Give yourself 30 – 45 minutes when you visit. Contact us!
With a maximum occupancy of 85, the downstairs hall of Twillingate Masonic Lodge is an ideal venue for weddings, parties, dances, dart tournaments, musical performances, dinners, conferences, training sessions, etc. It is equipped with a licensed bar, Internet/wi-fi, and commercial kitchen.
