Built in 1921, the New Masonic Temple in St. Louis has a prestigious history.

Then-Senator and Free Mason Grand Master Harry Truman had an office here before he became president. Charles Lindbergh was initiated here before he crossed the Atlantic in the Spirit of St. Louis. And Ernest Borgnine (also a mason) filmed a scene on the steps of the temple for the John Carpenter film Escape from New York (1980).

If you are interested in buying a piece of history, the New Masonic Temple is up for sale for $6 million (as of Dec. 14, 2014).
