Lexington officials are hoping to learn this week about whether it has reached an agreement on a purchase price for the Scottish Rite Mason's headquarters.

Town Manager Carl Valente said Monday that a new offer was made last week to buy the property at 33 Marrett Road, but he said he could not divulge the dollar amount, which has been under negotiation for months.

If the Scottish Rite accepts the latest offer, Lexington Town Meeting members will decide whether the town should buy the property during a Town Meeting that will open Monday, March 18 at 7:30 p.m. in Cary Memorial Hall.

Lexington officials have been in negotiations to purchase about 10 acres of property from the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite Masons, which is looking to sell its headquarters and move into the organization’s neighboring National Heritage Museum.

Lexington officials have discussed using the property for a community center.
