The History of Freemasonry

first degree trestle boardThe origins of Freemasonry are not quite known to anybody alive. The truth gets lost somewhere in between the details of the historical and legendary stories of the craft. It's legends take us back to the building of King Solomon's temple in Jerusalem circa 1000 BC; history teaches that the first lodges emerged from the stone masons' guilds of the middle ages in Europe; there are stone engravings of the square, compasses, level, plumb, and trowel (the working tools of Freemasonry) excavated from Egyptian archaeological sites that date back to 3000 B.C. 

Who Are Masons?

Masons are a group of men that meet in a Lodge (or Temple) regularly to study Masonry, share their experiences in Masonry, and build the future of Masonry together. Through these activities, the brothers of a lodge learn to take responsibility for their lives and to look after one another. They grow in manhood, in leadership, in mentorship, and in their sense of duty to God, neighbor, country, and family.
