A Brief History of Mass. Masonry

We say that Freemasonry started in the east and traveled to the west, which brings us to the first chartered lodge in the western hemisphere. It was in the Massachusetts Bay Colony that the Grand Lodge of Masons in England granted a charter to Henry Price in 1733.  A bronze plaque situated on State Street in Boston marks the location where those first American colonists met as a formal, sanctioned Masonic entity.  To this day, the Grand Lodge of Masons in Massachusetts, currently located at the corner or Tremont and Boylston streets, is recognized as the third oldest Grand Lodge in the world, preceded only by The Grand Lodge of England and Grand Lodge of Ireland.
