Cambridge’s Masonic Hotel on Duke Street was built in 1912 to an Edwardian Classicism design by Auckland architect John Currie. Providing hospitality to locals and visitors to Cambridge for over a century, the Masonic is a significant landmark in the town. The building is currently in use as a backpackers, restaurant, gaming lounge and bar.

With the assistance of a Heritage EQUIP professional advice grant the owners have commissioned detailed structural and architectural design.

Following this professional advice, in October 2019, a Heritage EQUIP upgrade works grant was awarded for seismic strengthening based on the detailed structural and architectural design.

The Masonic Hotel is Heritage New Zealand listed category II.
