Fowler Methodist Episcopal Church, now known as the Scottish Rite Temple, is a historic church building in the Lowry Hill neighborhood of Minneapolis, Minnesota. It was designed by architects Warren H. Hayes and Harry Wild Jones. Hayes submitted the original design for the chapel in 1894, but financial difficulties and Hayes' death put construction on hold for a while. Harry Wild Jones took over the project and brought it to completion in 1906.cite web|url=http://www.ci.minneapolis.mn.us/hpc/landmarks/Dupont_Ave_S_2011_Scottish_Rite_Temple.asp|title=Fowler Methodist Episcopal Church|publisher=Minneapolis Heritage Preservation Commission|date=February 2007|accessdate=2008-09-11]

The Fowler congregation merged with the Hennepin Avenue Methodist Church in 1915, and the Scottish Rite Temple bought the building the next year. They made some modifications to the auditorium to accommodate Masonic rituals, but most of the original features were kept, including extensive use of stained glass. The exterior is built of hard quartzite from southwestern Minnesota, along with red sandstone trim. It has two massive towers, three arches over the entry porch, and a 24-foot diameter rose window.cite book |last=Millett |first=Larry |authorlink=Larry Millett |title=AIA Guide to the Twin Cities: The Essential Source on the Architecture of Minneapolis and St. Paul |year=2007 |publisher=Minnesota Historical Society Press |location= |isbn=0-87351-540-4 |pages=p. 278 ] The church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.
