Freemasons Ann Street Memorial CentrePrint Page
Freemasons Ann Street Memorial Centre was originally erected as a memorial to Freemasons who fell in the Great War 1914-1918. The Urn of Remembrance which is located in the vestibule of the centre was unveiled on the 9th December 1930 by the Governor of Queensland . The Centre also commemorates the fallen of World War Two.
The foundation stone of the temple was laid by the Grand Master, Brother O Stumm on the 25th April 1928 in the presence of a large and distinguished gathering of Masons. The ceremony marked a very important anniversary in Queensland as on the 25th April 1904 the United Grand Lodge was formed by the union of existing lodges. The temple is also a memorial to the Anzacs who fell in the Great War.
