Freemasons, and in depth masonry has always been of great interest to me.
I am originally from Detroit, which inhabits a Masonic Temple. A very large building with many theatres, venues, offices, rooms and areas to this day
in which I can't identify. The temple itself is not very lively, but it does however have events which periodically take place there. Some music
shows, lectures, etc. During one of these events, my uncle was in charge of setting up the sound equipment such as: The microphones, speakers, sound
boards etc. and also run the system during the event. Well, I helped him and his union carry in, carry out, and set up the equipment a few days prior
to the scheduled event in a nearly vacant Temple, so we thought. After finishing the event and disassembling all of the equipment at around midnight,
we decided to take a tour which we were told not to and stay in designated areas, but no ones here right? So why not. We explored all base levels, the
architecture is STUNNING, well thought out, designed with great symmetry and filled with free masonry ideology. During our exploration most if not all
doors were locked, which wasn't surprising, but of course you try to open each one in hopes it is not right? Eventually we stumbled upon the door
which lead up many flights of stairs to presumably the top of the temple. As we ascended we started to hear faint voices, note that the place is known
to be haunted, so we figured could this be our first paranormal experience? I don't recall which floor we made it to, but I felt like we walked up
about 4-5 flights of stairs before we started to hear voices, and continued onward till they got louder, still ineligible but at this point identified
as human. We stopped at one of the floors we thought the voices were coming from, felt the door handle, it was unlocked and proceeded. Amongst the
long hall way were many doors lining the wall, which I assumed to be lounges or offices? Closer to the end there was a room that had visible light
emitting. After entering the hall way following my uncle, the door shut with a thud behind me and a few seconds after the lights whether they were
candle or electronic, went out and the voices stopped. We exited as quickly as we entered and ended the tour on that note, and finished up clearing
out all the equipment and ended our night on an interesting page.
Weird experience to say the least, interesting story I thought I would share with you! Highly recommend visiting a Temple if you ever get the chance,
the vibe is truly unique and the buildings are very mysterious!
