The Minnesota Masonic Family is a diverse group of compassionate men and women who share common values and are committed to service in the name of Masonry, the world’s oldest and largest fraternal order.
The Masonic fraternity promotes the growth of each member by encouraging adherence to the principals of morality and virtue and a dedication to humanitarian and philanthropic endeavors.
Masonic History is filled with leaders in philanthropy, politics, health, and the arts. 14 Presidents of the United States were Masons, including George Washington, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, and Gerald R. Ford. Patriots such as Benjamin Franklin, John Hancock, and Paul Revere were also Masons.
Founded more than 155 years ago, the Grand Lodge of Minnesota governs 159 local Lodges and more than 15,000 members statewide.
Our sister organization, Order of the Eastern Star, oversees 76 Chapters with more than 7,500 members.
