    For history of Masonry in Texas, I heartily recommend Milam #2 in Nacogdoches. The still have their Republic of Texas Charter, and they were very instrumental durin the Space Shuttle crash. Took some of my Brothers there for a tour and it was GREAT.

    You can also visit some wonderfully beautiful and historic Lodges right here on the web.

    Cooke-Peavy Masonic Lodge #1162/Panther City Masonic Lodge #1183

    Fort Worth Masonic Lodge #148/Julian Feild Masonic Lodge #908

    These are all housed in the Fort Worth Masonic Temple in Fort Worth, TX. While there, you must see the York Rite Red Room and Commandery Grand Asylum as well.

    These are some of the most beautiful lodge rooms in Texas.

    I live close to the Oklahoma & Arkansas borders. Try going to one of these states. There work is different and very interesting.

    The George Washington National Masonic Memorial in Alexandria, VA is a good choice as well. I really enjoyed the short amount of time that I got to spend there last November.

    My Lodge, Fairbanks #1363! We've got great murals (never finished...the Brother that was painting them went to the CLA before he finished). They follow the work.

    Any of the Lodges my ancestors were members of. My sister does the geneology thing so there are quite a few - all up north :( LOL

    Anyone been to Guthrie, OK? I've heard Guthrie and St. Louis have a few of the best Scottish Rite temples in the country.

    The one in Guthrie is phenomenal! It was originally built to be the Capital and is beautiful.

    I, for one, can't wait to see it. Hoping to get up there for the Scottish Rite festival soon.

    Another place I think worth seeing would be the library of the Grand Lodge of Iowa. Many of the craft's greatest American authors published through that GL. I'd love to spend a four-day weekend checking that one out.

    My cousin has been to Guthrie mant times and the building is mind blowing from how he has described it. I plan to get there soon as well if I can wrestle down the time to go.
