A Visible Sign

Heritage Hall, the former Christian Science Church, was built in 1922. It now houses the Heritage Hall Resource Center, which is operated by the Kirkland Heritage Society. Overlooking Heritage Park and Lake Washington, this classic Greek revival architectural style building is fully restored to its original 1920’s design.
Oliver the terrier and I walk around this building about once a month, more in the summer. With it's lovely outdoor veranda and gardens, it's popular for weddings. As seen from space, we can see that the grounds of Heritage Hall are laid out with geometric precision. This geometry is a sign that Freemasons were involved in the planning. Let's lay it out, shall we?

This Masonic square and compasses is an emblem of the fraternity. In fact, the Square and Compasses is trademark protected by the fraternity.

For centuries, the square and compasses have represented the fraternity of Freemasonry. It is an emblem because its only meaning is that it represents the fraternity.

When you view it, you would not confuse it with representing any other entity other than Freemasonry. It represents an abstract idea, (that of a group of people who conform to specific beliefs.)

When you see the image of the 2 symbols (the Masonic square and compasses) in this configuration, together, they emblemize the fraternity. They are a visible "sign" of the fraternity. ~Masonic Lodge of Education
