Welcome 

Welcome to the Brattleboro Masonic Lodge's website. Feel free to browse anywhere. If you have any events coming up in your lodge, please add them to our calendar.

 

Masonry is the world's oldest and largest fraternity for men. Although the details of Masonry's beginnings are lost, it is certain that in 1717 four lodges met in a London coffeehouse and formed the first Grand Lodge or association of lodges.

 

Masonry entered this country early in our history. Benjamin Franklin, an active Mason, printed the first Masonic book published in the United States. George Washington and other American leaders were active Masons.

 

Brattleboro Lodge is now allowing public usage of the lodge for gatherings, reception and other function needing a large gathering room and kitchen. For information regarding the use of the building, contact the steward at brattleboro102steward@gmail.com or call at (802) 254-4801.

 

 

Where Did We Come From??

 

Although the actual origins of Freemasonry are clouded in the mists of antiquity, it is widely agreed that Masonry dates back to the late fourteenth century and flourished during the middle ages when guilds of Operative Masons traveled throughout Europe building the great gothic cathedrals. Apprentices were taken in and taught the craft by Master Masons who passed on the secrets of the trade. As building declined, the guilds began to accept members who were not actually stone Masons. From these roots evolved Speculative Masonry, as we know it today.

 

Ritual, that is, the initiation of candidates conducted within each lodge has been the same work that's been done for hundreds and hundreds of years. Every Mason, on earth, has been led through the same traditions and instructed in the same mysteries and secrets of Freemasonry. But, make no mistake Freemasonry is not a secret organization. If it were, our buildings would not be easily identifiable and our members would not wear rings and other jewelry with the familiar square & compasses emblem.
