The Messick Preservation Foundation was formed in 2016 to aid the Messick Masonic Temple in building restoration and preservation.


The Messick Preservation Foundation was developed to raise awareness and funding for the preservation of the Messick Masonic Temple. Through tax breaks, grants, and donations, our goal is to save our building for generations to come! 


Our current and most exciting project, is Project 2025! This is a 3 phase project, one each year until our 100th anniversary, to completely restore the exterior of our building! Phase 1 is well underway on the main entrance or East facade. We will continue to raise funds and seek grants to move on the phase 2 in 2022! Please stop by and check out our progress or email for any questions you may have!


Donations to MPF may be tax deductable. For more information, please email us at
