The Adams Room

    The Adams Room is one of the major public rooms located on the second floor along with the Grand foyer. 

The Grand Lodge Room served as the office of the Grand Secretary of the Masonic Temple from 1890 until 1972. 

The room also served as the private reception room for President Roosevelt during his visit to Richmond, in 1905. A public ball held in the Grand Lodge Room ( The Roosevelt Ballroom ) followed the private reception for the President. Today the room remains much as it did at the turn of the twentieth-century. The wall accents, carpet and decor reflects the grandeur of the time and the room remains spacious and well lighted as intended by architects in 1888, making the Adams room ideal for conferences, small receptions, even wedding  ceremonies of up to 150 guests.
