The San Francisco Scottish Rite Center at 2850 19th Avenue and Sloat Boulevard, across from Stern Grove on Highway 1, opened in 1963 when San Francisco Scottish Rite Bodies moved from its Regency Center on Sutter Street. The center was designed by local architect, Albert F. Roller, and is a model example of Scottish Rite buildings in California. Roller also designed the Masonic Memorial Temple at 1111 California. Its exterior mosaics and interior murals and wood carvings are the work of artist and architect, Millard Sheets. The center underwent a recent renovation in 2010.
Two libraries, including lodge spaces, a fireplace lounge, a dining hall accommodating up to 450 seats, with full-service industrial kitchen, an outdoor atrium, dance floor, audio visual setup, and lighting, and an auditorium, with a 2,000 square foot performance stage, organ, grand piano, green room, dressing rooms, and 760 seat auditorium comprise the facilities of the center.
