Silvergate Masonic Temple 3795 Utah Street Built - 1931 Architect - Quayle Brothers Style - Art Deco


This three-story building was designed to resemble King Solomon’s Temple; it was constructed primarily of poured, reinforced concrete and was completed in 1933. The interior boasts examples of Egyptian Revival design on light fixtures, curtain rods and ceiling stencils. The large Lodge Room on the third floor is completely Egyptian Revival. It is an impressive, windowless room designed to look like an Egyptian throne room. Exotic designs include stencils of the scarab beetle on light fixtures around the walls; stenciled wooden beams across the ceiling; Egyptian columns flank a raised, stage area at each end of the room; and three wooden “throne” chairs on each of these stages, each chair having Egyptian designs carved on its back. Huge, circular light fixtures hang from the ceiling on long pillars which terminate at the ceiling in a lotus/ papyrus design, like the tops of columns.
