Located in Dupont Circle, the Temple of the Scottish Rite is considered one of the most beautiful monuments in the city. The Masonic shrine resembles the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus. The museum displays artifacts from Robert Burns and J. Edgar Hoover, among others. Of particular interest is the main reading room of the library, which features antique two-story ladders, a vast selection of material and heavy cushioned chairs for reading and relaxation. This was the first 'public library' in DC.
