Knight Templars of Iowa Lodge

-A A +A
1918. Templar Park, north of the town of Spirit Lake, off Iowa 276

The architect of this building looked to the Mission Revival. On each corner of the three-and four-story main block are open towers with hipped roofs. The broad overhanging roofs are tiled. Arched openings and deep wall reveals further establish the building's Mission image.
