OUR HERITAGE

Located in Upper Douglas, where period townhouses overlook leafy squares, Woodbourne House was the original grand residence of this historic part of the city.

 

The building dates back to the early 1900s, when it was commissioned by the eminent Thomas Harrison who served in the House of Keys. In the mid part of the century the house was sold, and in the 1850s it was a boarding school for young ladies.

 

In 1923 the Freemasons bought the house, and the following year the foundation stone of the spectacular masonic temple was laid. It has been home to the island’s Freemasons ever since.

Our vision

Having restored this magnificent building to its former glory, we’re looking forward to a new era which will see Woodbourne House at the heart of the community.

 

As well as being the go-to venue for events such as conferences and weddings, our vision is to be a focal point in the island’s vibrant social scene – home to everything from food festivals to exhibitions to charitable events.
