Northern Blue Lodge, Southern Orient?


Premium Member
I recently moved to the Cincinnati area (about a 30 minute drive to the Kentucky border) and will soon be joining a blue lodge here. While I am not yet a member of the Scottish Rite, it is something I intend to do in the future. Obviously, there are some differences between the northern and southern jurisdictions, and I was curious if a Mason has the option of joining a SR jurisdiction in a state that is different than his blue lodge.

I don't know if that's the path I would want to go, just trying to figure out if I'd have the option when the time comes to choose between northern or southern.
