In October 1992, the Mosaic Templars Building Preservation Society was organized for the purpose of securing and rehabilitating the Mosaic Templars headquarters building and currently holds 501(c)(3) status. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the structure is one of only three major landmarks remaining from the "Heyday" of West Ninth Street, and was once the hub of black business and social life in Little Rock and the surrounding area.

The effort to save the Mosaic Templars Building and the idea of its potential use, at least in part, as a museum and/or cultural center, have struck a common chord, to bring together people from all walks of life.

In October 1993 in furtherance of the partnership agreement with our Society, the City of Little Rock purchased the building outright. It is now our task to raise the money necessary to complete this project.

The Mosaic Templars Building, always a symbol of hope and achievement, is as vital now to the people of Little Rock as it was after the turn of the last century. Please join us in the noble effort to restore this historic monument and preserve related community history.
