Located in the heart of downtown Iowa City at 312 East College Street, the Iowa City Masonic Building is an historic Beaux-Arts building constructed in 1913.  The four-level 18,000 square foot building currently provides short-term rental space for one-time events or regularly recurring meetings, commercial rental space for long-term business tenants, leased parking rentals, and meeting space for various local Masonic groups.

Elegant Surroundings for Special Events

For short term rental use, we are now proud to promote to the general public our social hall. Our auditorium and library spaces may also be rented.

Our building is handicapped accessible and includes elevator access to all floors.  Parking is conveniently located streetside, and several city ramps are within a short walking distance.  A small parking lot behind the building may also be available on weekends for your event’s use.  Please discuss any potential parking needs during your event space rental process, so that if possible, arrangements can be made.


Please contact our Events Coordinator, Denise Gehling, to discuss your event space needs, and for further information regarding availability and rates.  The Events Coordinator is available to meet by appointment.  You can reach Ms. Gehling by text at 319-530-8026 (quickest reply) or feel free to leave a voicemail.
