Lodge Organization

and history 

Our lodge was instituted March 17, 1926 on the 150th Anniversary of the Evacuation of Boston, on the Gun Deck of the Frigate U.S.S. Constitution to function as the Military Veterans Lodge of the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts.

Organized for past and present personnel of the United States Armed Forces to cement by the ties of Freemasonry the bond that exists between servicemen.

Proudly, we bear the name of a hero of the American Revolution, a Bostonian, the first Secretary of War, and a Mason.
