Closing Scheduled for Masonic Temple Purchase


This one is for the locals. I do not plan on doing this type of announcement on a regular basis, but this one is very important to the West Haven community. The City will be closing on the Masonic Temple on Friday, July 20th at 11:30. Citizens should gather on the front lawn of the old Masonic Temple about 15 minutes prior to the official time. The building is located at 304 Center Street in West Haven, Connecticut.

Okay, friends. Help me, and the entire West Haven Council on the Arts Cooperative, support the arts in our city. To recap, the City will use the Temple as a base until City Hall is renovated. This should take about 2 years. After that, the former Masonic Temple will be turned over to the WHCAC. Our plans are to make it an arts center for instruction, entertainment, and various arts-related functions. The building has just been through asbestos abatement and is ready for the next stage of planning. Help us demonstrate the importance of this step in making West Haven a place for the arts. By bringing an active arts center into the community, we bring trade and energy to our city.

Help us support the arts! Bring your friends! The more people, the better.

Thank you for your support of this step in making our city a home for the arts.

Vice President
West Haven Council on the Arts Cooperative
