The Petaluma Masonic hall was built in 1881 and is a wonderful example of Victorian architecture in Sonoma County. The building was completely renovated in 1995, including the addition of an elevator to make every floor fully handicapped-accessible. Although the building as all the modern conveniences of newer buildings, it still maintains an atmosphere of the late 1800s. Our first floor is leased by local Petaluma businesses. All of our leases are long-term and we enjoy a close working relationship with the business owners.
From weddings to parties, executive dinners to town meetings, many people approach us asking to rent space in our building for their event. We open the second and third floors for rentals Friday through Sunday, pending prior commitments. Interested in renting a space? Contact our rental coordinator George Whitten at 707-762-4171 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
