230 Second Street: Masonic Temple, Kentucky Theater, 7 Arts Cinema, now Citi-Center building.

The Masonic Hall is a four-story, five-bay, twentieth century, classical revival property of brick masonry with a veneer front and stone detailing. A flat, unadorned pediment with stone coping sits above a dentiled stone cornice with frieze etched with the works “Masonic Temple”. The bays are divided by stone pilasters with Ionic capitals and plain bases. Fretwork belts form the sills of the fourth floor windows and the base of the columns. Third and fourth floor windows are eight-over-eight sash. The third floor is defined by horizontal brick relief bands and small, deeply inset casement windows. Spandrels between the upper floors are plaques with Masonic emblems. The first floor has three main bays divided by large, square brick pillars. New transoms and plate glass showcases have been installed.
