HERITAGE ENDURES: Perspectives On 200 years Of Indiana Freemasonry


HERITAGE ENDURES: 
Perspectives On 200 Years Of Indiana Freemasonry
by Christopher L. Hodapp


Freemasonry crossed the frontier into the Indiana Territory officially in 1809 when the Grand Lodge of Kentucky organized Vincennes Lodge No. 15 in that growing town along the banks of the Wabash River. It would take nine more years and the declaration of Indiana statehood before the formation of the Grand Lodge of Indiana F&AM on January 13, 1818 in Madison. Since that time, Indiana's Freemasons have been at the center of their communities, their state, and the nation.

Heritage Endures by Christopher Hodapp (Freemasons For Dummies) is a different type of grand lodge history book.  It frames the Hoosier state's fraternity within America's history and the outside Masonic world for the last two centuries. Heritage Endures explores some of the most fascinating, heroic, touching, turbulent, and a few of the most unsettling moments of Indiana's and America's Masonic history.

  • Signposts of Masonic History - Indiana's Masonic Historical Markers
  • Before the Beginning - Freemasonry in Frontier Indiana
  • Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth - Harry Truman, Compass Park, and the Masonic Library and Museum of Indiana
  • Indiana’s Freemasons Halls
  • Indiana Masons and the Ku Klux Klan
  • Indiana and E-Masonry - How Computers Changed Everything
  • Prince Hall Freemasonry and Recognition in Indiana
  • Masons and Membership Issues
  • What Comes Next?
Heritage Endures goes far beyond the borders of Indiana and tells a broader tale of Freemasonry as a fraternal and social force that has evolved and adapted to suit the times in which it has resided. It is a unique series of perspectives of the Masonic fraternity in America as a whole, using the Hoosier state's Masons and their lodges as an example of the nation's wider fraternal landscape.
