In 1921, the Hollywood lodge of the Masons relocated from their existing lodge on the current site of the Kodak Theater. The construction of the new three-story building was led by lodge master, Charles E. Toberman, who was responsible for the Hollywood Bowl, Grauman's Chinese Theatre, the Roosevelt Hotel and the Max Factor Building.
The building was designed by architect John C. Austin, also noted as the lead architect of the Griffith Observatory.
The building was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.
