PRESCOT Masonic Hall is opening its doors to the public on Saturday, September 8 as part of Heritage Open Days.
Between 10am and 3pm, the hall will allow visitors to find out more about the historic buildings and see documents and furniture dating back to the 18th century.
The hall consists of seven lodges, including the oldest Masonic Lodge in Merseyside which was founded in 1753.
The day will also give visitors opportunity to ask their tour guides questions about Freemasonry and find out more about the extensive charity work it supports.
One of the visitors on the day will be Knowsley MP George Howarth who said: “The historic elements of the building will also be something I will find interesting and I’m very much looking forward to the event.”
