Welcome to the Brainerd Masonic Center.
The Brainerd Masonic Center is host to the Aurora Masonic Lodge 100, Alpha 23 Order of the Eastern Star and Aadzuhman Shrine Club. The Center is located at the corner of 6th and Front streets in the historic First National Bank building at the heart of downtown Brainerd Minnesota. Not only do these organizations share the building, but also its colorful history, which includes the daring robbery by Lester M Gillis, aka “Baby Face Nelson” on October 23, 1923, bullet holes still visible to this day on the facade.
The organizations also share a mission of philanthropy. Each has its own projects that combine for the support of children in need. The Shriner’s Hospitals for Children, the Masonic Children’s Hospital of the University of Minnesota, the Masonic Cancer Center, and the Minnesota Masonic Home are just a few of the numerous charities these organizations support with fund raising.
