Not many people may be aware that the Masonic Temple on 1950 Massachusetts Avenue in Porter Square holds a wealth of Cambridge history inside its walls. The best room is the portrait gallery, which houses paintings and photographs of prominent Cambridge Masons. It’s claim to fame is the huge photograph, gilt framed portrait of Lucius R. Paige, the author of seminal 19th Century work on Cambridge – the History of Cambridge. There’s even a room dedicated to Paige. (This is great news for all you Paige fans out there – and you know who you are!) The building is open throughout the week. Stop by and ask for Lodge historian Keith MacKinnon for a guided tour. You won’t be disappointed!
