The Neo-Gothic and Romanesque Scranton Masonic Temple and Scottish Rite Cathedral was designed by architect Raymond M. Hood. The rectangular plan building is clad in coursed ashlar Indiana limestone supported by a structural steel framework. The temple-cathedral originally included the main auditorium, a grand ballroom, an eight lane bowling alley, a library, a "Ladies Parlor," two formal lodge rooms, a billiard and card parlor, and a smaller theater / lodge hall combination. The facility was later operated and maintained by a non-profit corporation as the Scranton Cultural Center.

My great grandfather didn't travel 4,000 miles across the ocean to see this country overrun by immigrants. He did it because he killed a man back in Ireland. (Stephen Colbert on Arizona's 2010 immigration law)
