Englewood – Chicago – Secret Places #4 – The Southside Masonic Loge!

If you closed your eyes and all of the sudden you were in front of the abandoned South Side Masonic Loge and all of the sudden opened them and looked at this majestic structure that is almost in unrecoverable state this will be the thoughts that could come to you; This could be the future Obama Presidential Library site, This could be a South Campus of the Chicago Art Institute, This could be fancy boutique hotel with a huge English Garden in front, This could be the new Chicago School of Photography.

I can think of so many things and so many possibilities. I can not fathom it being demolished and not preserved as something that once symbolized a very thriving community in the 1920’s in fact it was the most important shopping district in Chicago after State Street.

Just something to ponder
