Presentation: Ascending Temple Heights – In the 1920s, the district’s masonic community came together to build Temple Heights, a sprawling masonic complex located in the heart of the nation’s capital. Join us as we take a look back at Temple Heights, the District’s most ambitious (and expensive) project that never came to fruition.

Speaker Bio: Chris Ruli is a member of Potomac Lodge No. 5 in Georgetown and serves as the Grand Historian and Librarian of the Grand Lodge of the District of Columbia. Chris’ research focuses on the District’s early masonic history and fraternity’s social impact during the turn of the 20th century.  In early 2017, Bro. Chris launched “From the Archives”, a recurring series for the Grand Lodge of DC blog to share interesting and often-overlooked stories. Ruli currently leads efforts to digitize the Grand Lodge’s Library and Museum and in late 2019, he was inducted as a contributing author to Washington History, the official publication of the D.C. Historical Society, located at the Carnegie Library.
