Photos: A Rare Look Inside Covington's Scottish Rites Temple

The Scottish Rites Temple sits prominently on a raised parcel of land on the 1500 block of Madison Avenue, directly south of Kroger.

The Masons built it and have used the facility since 1953.

Rarely does one outside of the organization get a chance to go inside but the 2014 River Cities Historic Preservation Awards were handed out there on Wednesday, and since the winners were already reported here on Tuesday, The River City News took the opportunity to sneak around the building and take some photos.

(Thanks to Joyce Baker for the guided tour! Oh, and be sure to check out the pictures of the kitchen where tradition has it that Colonel Sanders himself had a hand in designing it!)
