I get a kick out of that stuff.  It's just like the layout of Washington DC, it takes dotted lines to finish the concept.Big%20smile  You could probably do that with half of the citys in the US.  If the Masons were so all powerful whyzit that these things were never actually finished.

The Pentagon is definitely not masonic (as in Freemasonry). A fundamental concept of Freemasonry is the importance of the right angle - hence masons refer to themselves as 'on the square'.

Of course it is masonic.

The pentagram is Masonic, the pentagon isn't.

I think you will find that the Pentagon was designed as a modification of the older Star forts that were very popular in Europe and the American colonies in the 1600 and 1700's. The even lasted somewhat into the 1800's though were replaced with the Casemate style forts that were more heavily armed on multiple tiers and could defend more easily naval attacks. The Pentagon has no significance as far a masonic architecture. Masonic architecture is more readily seen in the classic cathedrals in Europe.
