Prior to 1939, Kingman Lodge No. 22 had met in the Odd Fellows meeting hall. As both fraternal organizations grew, the Masons decided that they needed their own building. Today, the downstairs of the temple is used for office space for downtown area of Kingman. Kingman Masonic Lodge and The Order of Eastern Star still meet in the upper floor of the Temple.[citation needed] The temple is on the National Register of Historic Places.[1]
