Paul Krekorian would like North Hollywood Masonic Temple to be Cultural Monument

NoHollywoodMasonicTempleNORTH HOLLYWOOD – The Masonic Temple in North Hollywood is up for consideration as the city’s newest cultural monument after Councilmember Paul Krekorian introduced a motion last week calling on officials to include the 64-year-old building in the city’s list of Historic-Cultural Monuments.

From the Motion received June 11:

The Masonic Temple, built in 1949 at 5122 Tujunga Ave., is “one of the few remaining examples of Exotic Revival architecture with elements of Mayan Revival and exhibits high quality of design.”
