Prince Hall Masonic Temple

On Christmas Day 2020, a fire broke out in the basement of 883 Eddy Street. This building, originally the Eddy Street School, has long been home to the Prince Hall Masonic Temple, Acacia Club, and other Black civic organizations. The fire, still under investigation, spread throughout the building, causing damage and loss of historical artifacts. Click here to read our full article on the history (and future) of this important cultural center in Providence.
