Orient of Oregon
Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, S. J.
Human progress is our cause, liberty of thought our supreme wish, freedom of conscience our mission, and the guarantee of equal rights to all people everywhere our ultimate goal.
We are located in downtown Portland in the historic Goose Hollow neighborhood. The Portland Scottish Rite Center is 2 blocks from both the Providence Park Metro Area Express (MAX) stops on SW 15th Ave. between SW Yamhill St. and SW Morrison St. The MAX red and blue lines run eastbound (red: City Center/Airport; blue: Gresham) on SW Yamhill St. and westbound (red: Beaverton TC; blue: Hillsboro) on SW Morrison St.
The cornerstone for Portland Scottish Rite Center was laid in 1902 and the building was completed in 1904 — making it one of the oldest buildings in downtown Portland. It was the first building of it's kind designed specifically for the Scottish Rite. It’s open most days of the week. All Scottish Rite Masons are cordially invited to attend our events so if you are a sojourner; are a member wishing to re-connect with us or are visiting the Rose City, please consult our calendar and attend. You will be most welcome!
