    My lodge building burned down

    It was indeed a beautiful building outside and inside. The nice thing if any, is that she is listed on the national register, so if the shell is sound they can rebuild from the exterior inward. I had the honor of visiting the building many years ago and what a Temple. I was there in July and...

    Civil War Traveling Lodge, 9th Texas Infantry

    A Military Lodge is sometimes sponsored by a regular Lodge or was instituted by members of a certain Lodge within that regiment. It was also instituted by a certain GL. The only thing I can say is check with the GL of Texas, if it was instituted by GL of Texas, then when the Lodge went dark...

    Why no numbers?

    When I was raised a Master Mason some 29 years ago, I never gave it a thought on why my Lodge did not have a number, nor why other Lodges did. Throughout my travels, research, and a member of a number of forums, I hear "why does your Lodge or Grand Lodge have no numbers?"...
