"To preserve the reputation of the Fraternity unsullied must be your constant care."

“The Masonic system represents a stupendous and beautiful fabric, founded on universal purity, to rule and direct our passions, to have faith and love in God, and charity toward man.”
— William Howard Taft

NYT: Masonic Lodges Open Those Mysterious Doors

Good article in the New York Times last Thursday about Masonic buildings and artifacts being put on display in Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Washington DC. See Masonic Lodges Open Those Mysterious Doors.

Be sure to check out the recently refurbished Chamber of Reflection at the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts in Boston (photo).


  1. Looks great-I may have to go and check out!

  2. I have been to the Masonic Grand Lodge of Massachusetts and this room is quite stunning, the brothers have done a great job restoring it. It must be quite an experience to sit and reflect in that room.
