From the District Deputy Grand Master
Welcome to the First Masonic District of Massachusetts. Our district is composed of nine lodges, some of which are among the oldest in the nation, and all of which hold their meetings in downtown Boston, at the Grand Lodge building. I invite you to explore our site and to reach out to us should you have any questions, comments, or points of interest.
— Rt. Wor. Peter J. Lawson
Freemasonry came to the New World in 1733, with the first Grand Lodge established in Boston, Massachusetts. Since then, Massachusetts Freemasonry has spread to more than 200 Lodges in over 30 districts. The First Masonic District of Massachusetts represents some of the oldest Lodges not just within the Commonwealth, but within the entire country.
The mission of this site is to provide a forum of information and direction for the benefit of the Master Mason and the prospective Masonic Candidate. The dynamic location of the First Masonic District and the wealth of history and service from the constituent District Lodges is to be shared with all.
