National Register of Historic Places in Alameda County
The Masonic Temple is one of the earliest of the multistoried brick buildings which replaced Berkeley's wooden pioneer business district in the first decade of the 20th century.
It was designed in 1905 by William Wharff, architect of several buildings which helped establish the brick classical downtown style between 1903 and 1909. It is the only one of these buildings still largely unaltered.
