The Masonic Temple No. 25, also known as Hillsborough Masonic Lodge Number 25 is an historic Masonic building located at 508 East Kennedy Boulevard in Tampa, Florida, United States. On September 11, 1986, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.

Erected in 1927, the Lodge building was designed by Brother Leo Elliott after being inspired by three medieval Italian cathedrals. The cornerstone of the Hillsborough 25's fourth, and current Lodge building, was laid on June 18, 1928, by the Most Worshipful Grand Master of Florida, Cary B. Fish. The Lodge was constructed at its current location in Downtown Tampa, on the corner of East Kennedy Boulevard and Morgan Street. The first Masonic Lodge meeting in the new Temple was called on February 19, 1929.

The building includes a large dining room, kitchen, officer offices, library, conference room, lounge area, and lodge room. The Lodge room is adorned with a 40ft high, hand painted ceiling, and accommodates up to 450 Brothers and visitors. The Lodge rents out the three street-side rental units on the first floor to businesses.[3][4]
