The Ituni Masonic Temple on Ferry Street, New Amsterdam, is home to one of Guyana’s oldest fraternity, the Freemasons. This wooden structure built during the 19th century was chartered on December 29, 1896, and later consecrated on September 20, 1897. The Ituni Temple is noteworthy for its high tower with timber louvers and fine display of intricately designed fretwork.
