Formerly a Masonic temple, Stan Mansion’s grand facade and elegant interiors reﬂect the design by Moritz F. Straugh.
Built in 1921 and fully restored, the grandiose building was built in just six months.
Stan Mansion is located in the historic and charming Logan Square, recognized as one of the oldest neighborhoods in Chicago.
Built to house a chapter of the Knights Templar, the building remained a Masonic lodge for a majority of its years until Cera Stan bought the Temple and took on the maintenance and restoration of the building, including a recent and complete restoration in 2018 that ﬁnally returned the building to its original splendor.
The historic elegance and large capacity of this beautiful property easily allows for a wide variety of customization options. The high ceilings, ornate decor, and balcony overlooking the Main Ballroom allow photographers to capture stunning photographs of your event.
