The picture right is of Gothic Hall, the meeting place of the Grand Commandery of Knights Templar of Pennsylvania. Gothic Hall has all the characteristics of the architectural style for which it is named. The groins, pointed arches, pinnacles and spires appear in every part of the room. The Cross and Crown, emblem of the modern Knights Templar, hangs above the Commander’s throne (a replica of the Archbishop’s throne in Canterbury Cathedral.) The Latin inscription around the emblem means, ‘In this sign you will conquer.’ The pictures on the walls are of Past Grand Commanders. The wainscoting is of oiled pine, and all the furniture is hand-carved.
