The Scottish Rite Cathedral, like the Masonic Temple, is a massive building in a Classical mode. It is less articulated and more placid than its brawny neighbor to the west.

The 1924 building was designed by William Ittner, noted for his numerous school buildings as well as the nearby Continental Building which went up five years later.

Within, an auditorium seats 3000 occupants with no obstructions to view (shown on the Cathedral's own pages.

The building remains home to its original occupants, the "Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, Valley of St. Louis, Southern Jurisdiction".
