Perfectly overlooking downtown New Castle, the Scottish Rite Cathedral is one of the area's most beautiful historic buildings. In 1924, Illustrious Brother John S. Wallace wanted to build a Masonic Temple large enough for all Masonic groups to meet. Today, the Cathedral is still used as a Masonic Temple, as well as a public Banquet Facility and a 2,800 seat Auditorium. The Scottish Rite Cathedral is also pleased to be the "home away from home" for the Pittsburgh Symphony.
