DETROIT, MI (My TV20 News at 10) --- It's the largest building of its kind in the world.

But, there's uncertainty regarding the future of Detroit's Masonic Temple.)

The 14-story building is on the state and national lists of historic places.

But, it's also on another list, the foreclosure one.

Owners have a $152,000 tax bill from 2010 owed to the Wayne County Treasurer.

The building could go on the auction block in September.

The foreclosure does not mean the cancellation of the events scheduled there.

It can still be rented during this process.

Owners met with the treasurer Thursday morning.

We have not been told what happened at the meeting.

Local governments would get first crack at buying the temple before it goes to auction.

The bidding would start at $160,000.

A second auction would be held in October if there are no buyers.

Bidding there starts at $500.
