  • Harram Temple No. 23 - Temple Meeting - January 21, 2018

Who We Are...

Harram Temple was instituted in Port Tampa under the leadership of Noble John R. Hall, Illustrious Potentate in 1896. Here’s a point of history: during this time, they were called Rising Star #23 before the name was changed to Harram #23. Rising Star was moved to Tampa in 1900. Harram Temple No.23 was chartered September 25, 1927. Prince Hall Shrinedom embraces all of the basic fundamental concepts of the Masonic Order, but is more colorful with a broader spectrum of visibility by the manner in which it serves as a charitable non-profit organization and dispenses charity in the community and the care for its own.

Shrine History

Noble John G. Jones established our organization on June 3, 1893. Its incorporation took place on December 12, 1900. The Shrine Organization takes great pride in its Auxiliary, which is comprised of wives, sisters, mothers and daughters of the membership – officially styled, the Imperial Court Daughters, an auxiliary of the A.E.A.O.N.M.S.

The Imperial Potentate, and the Daughters by the Imperial Commandress, heads the Shrine. The men of the organization, Nobles, wear the red Fez; and the women, Daughters, an auxiliary of the A.E.A.O.N.M.S. wear the white Fez. Most importantly, both are community servants.
