Description
Photograph shows an inside room in the Scottish Rite Temple.
The Scottish Rite Temple stands at the corner of North Third and St. James Streets. Designed by Carl Werner, the $400,000 temple was dedicated on May 8, 1925. It boasted an auditorium that could seat 1,400 and a kitchen that could feed 1,000. When the Scottish Rite moved to a new temple south of downtown, the building received a $6 million renovation and reopened in 1981 as the San Jose Athletic Club.
