Come to Find Out the Secrets of Freemasonry at the Brattleboro Masonic Lodge’s Open House, Sat. May 18th

Freemasonry is the oldest fraternity in the world and evolved out of the stonemason trade guilds that went back to Biblical times. After the Renaissance, and with the start of the Reformation, and during the Age of Enlightenment, more individuals of learning, business people, and those from the nobility wanted to consider alternative ideas in philosophy, science, and government that were not considered acceptable topics for public discourse. They found tiled lodges of fraternal Freemasonry excellent venues for presenting papers on different subjects and receiving feedback regarding the thesis they advanced.

In 1717 the Grand Lodge of London revealed itself to the public after which several Grand lodges were established. In 1733 two major lodges were formed in the American Colonies; one in Boston, Massachusetts and the other in Philadelphia, PA.  In 1792 the Grand Lodge of Vermont became the 18th Grand Lodge to be formed in the world.

With that mind the Brattleboro Lodge of Masons will be hosting an open house and tour of the building, along with light refreshments. Questions will be entertained about the fraternity. If anyone is interested in considering membership please let us know by calling 802-257-0464.

The Open House will take place on Saturday, May 18th, between 9 AM to 2 PM. Everyone and their families are welcome to attend.
