Colorado Lodge Vandalized, Items Stolen

Brethren, I received this message today from Nevada Lodge No. 4 in Nevadaville, Colorado, that was vandalized and had several items stolen:

Brethren, as you may or may not be aware, our beloved Nevada Masonic Temple was burglarized at some point in the last week or so. They broke out a window on the dining room and stole several valuable artifacts. They stole both Tyler's swords, several antique hats, the antique flag that hung in the prep room, the triangle, a trowel, and the marshal's rod. They also kicked in the inner door to the lodge room.
We are fortunate that no further damage occurred, and that nothing else was taken. The police came, and a report has been filed. We will keep you updated as we learn more.
Scott Sworts, Master
​If you see these items on eBay, Craigslist, etc, let us know.​


  1. So sad, I hope you recover your items ASAP. I will keep and eye out.

  2. Will do worshipful brother. It could help if pictures of the items where posted so they could be recognised. Fraternally yours, Michael of Solomon's Temple Lodge of Uxbridge MA.


PLEASE sign or otherwise identify yourself in your comment posts. I have been FLOODED for months with spam comments, and I've been forced to laboriously screen every post now. Anonymous postings on Masonic topics have the same status as cowans and eavesdroppers as far as I am concerned, and may be deleted if I don't recognize you or if I'm in a grumpy mood.
