Northgate Masonic Lodge was built in 1928. Post-WWI housing estates around Toombul and Nudgee Roads led to a rise in this suburb’s population. A Masonic Lodge was formed, in Northgate, in 1922, with 69 founding members. The Lodge would meet in the Northgate School of Arts in Ridge Street. This two-storied, Masonic Hall/Temple was constructed six years later, on a hillside site in Gympie Street, closer to the railway station. Declining membership by the 1990s caused the sale of this hall, with the Northgate Lodge transferring its activities to Sandgate’s Northside Masonic Centre.
