Moslah Shrine History

Moslah Shrine has a rich and colorful history. Moslah Shrine was given special dispensation to operate on May 14, 1914, and by December 31, 1914, membership had grown to 659 Nobles. It was granted a permanent charter at Imperial Session in Seattle, Washington on July 13, 1915. Moslah Patrol and Moslah Band were the first two units organized and chartered in 1914. Moslah Shrine now boasts a total of 12 units, 11 clubs, and 2 associations, with total membership of over 2700, making it the 3rd largest Shrine Center in the state of Texas.

Ground was broken on the first Moslah Shrine Center, or Mosque as it was then called, on Reynolds Point overlooking Lake Worth, on September 5, 1917. This building was destroyed by fire on January 10, 1927. Shortly thereafter, Moslah Shrine moved into the Masonic Temple at 1100 Henderson St., where it has resided ever since.

Moslah Shrine supports our philanthropy, Shriners Hospitals for Children, with numerous fund raising efforts such as our Gala, Golf Tournament, and of course our most visible effort, Street Corner Collection day, spearheaded each year by our Assistant Rabban. In 2011, Moslah Shriners raised more than $250,000.00 for our hospitals.

Moslah Shrine Circus has enjoyed nearly 70 years of bringing good clean family fun to Fort Worth.
