Summaryopen/close

This historic place was registered under the Historic Places Act 1980. The following text is the original citation considered by the NZHPT Board at the time of registration.

An impressive Greek revival building the Masonic Lodge in Invercargill is the third hall built for the Masons in the city. Designed by Broderick and Royd it was completed in 1926.

Having both a magnificent interior and exterior this free standing building sits on an elevated position. Constructed in brick and concrete the building's restrained fa├žade includes a plain parapet and cornice atop some bold fluted doric columns. The splendid Greek Doric interior is highlighted by some Egyptian columns with a fine gallery at the rear and a celestial dome atop the structure.

The lodge by its siting and architectural splendour is a highly significant building and probably the most impressive of any lodge building in the country.
