The Masonic Temple in Salina, Kansas is a monumental Classical Revival-style building completed in 1927. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000. It is 125 by 170 feet and is built of reinforced concrete. It is clad in limestone and marble. It was designed by Oklahoma City architect William T. Schmitt. Two years into its construction, the structure collapsed, and Schmitt was replaced by Isaac L. Zerbe of the firm Wilmarth & Zerbe, and "apparently the contractor freely consulted both plans in completing the construction." Famed musician John Phillip Sousa played during the dedication ceremony in 1927. The grand lobby of these seven floors,160,000 square foot building contains marble slabs, split to reflect angel wings and the front doors are made of bronze. And if that didn't make "The Temple" intimidating enough, there are 122 hand-hammered copper gargoyles surrounding the building. As the years gone by, The Temple still remains as the most iconic building in Salina. However, some people who have walked inside The Temple never left. the two most famous, or infamous residents of the building are “Top Hat Man” and “Zachary”. Top Hat Man is sometimes seen and heard in the upper balconies of the theatre, while the mischievous Zachary, who is believed to be a 5-year-old boy, has been known to untie and sometimes even cut shoelaces. There have been numerous unexplained happenings inside of the building. Things like doors opening and closing, voices and singing can be heard, and some have heard what appears to be the sound of an old-time AM radio frequency. Joining you in investigating The Temple that evening is two of the most respected paranormal investigators in the paranormal field, Brandon Alvis and Mustafa Gatollari! Brandon and Mustafa were on A&E's Ghost Hunters and are the co-authors of their book ELEMENTS OF A HAUNTING. Assisting Flumeri Promotions that evening will be none other than Apex Paranormal!
