In 1911, the Mosaic Templars of America, an African-American burial and life insurance agency located in Little Rock (Pulaski County), began construction on this four-story, 10,000-square-foot national headquarters. Completed approximately two years later, it was dedicated by Booker T. Washington. The building, which contained offices, businesses, and an elegant auditorium, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1990. While under restoration, the building burned in 2005. It was rebuilt in 2008 as an African-American cultural center.
