former Scottish Rite Temple

  • Knights of Columbus Hall (former Scottish Rite Temple) (David Gebhard and Gerald Mansheim)

The richness of the Prairie school is here reduced to a light, linear pattern running across two of the building's street facades. The windows are all organized as tight groups broken by narrow intervening piers. Each of the upper piers displays slightly projecting cast-stone capitals.
