This imposing three-story Beaux-Arts classical building rises from a rusticated stone podium, is articulated by full-height engaged pilasters, and is ornamented with carved limestone garlands and a ceremonial double-headed eagle above the central entrance. The interior auditorium is splendid, with elaborate interchangeable, custom-painted theatrical backdrops invoking symbols and ritual themes of Freemasonry.
