What Is Freemasonry?

It is the Leading Fraternal Organization in the World 

It is nearly impossible to trace the origins of Freemasonry back to when it first began.  it was first formally organized in London, England in 1717 with the forming of the first Grand Lodge of Freemasonry.  

Freemasonry on a Global Scale

There are more than 3 Million Members within this Fraternal Organization all around world.  1.1 Million of whom are located in North America.  

This is Ohio Freemasonry

With 75,000 Masons and 450 local Lodges, Ohio has one of the largest Masonic memberships of any state in the country.  Ohio Freemasonry is found in every town and village throughout our State.  It is greeting your Brethren with a hand shake and a hug.  It is community breakfast events at the Lodge, and collecting food and toys during the Holidays for families in need.  It is living by your Blue Lodge Tenets, in your home and within your Community. This is Freemasonry, this is Ohio Freemasonry! 

Ohio Freemasonry is men who still believe in honor, integrity, truth and love for country. Men of respect, kindness and tolerance, fully accepting of our brothers’ religion, race, age, status or culture. Bound as one in the continual pursuit of light and knowledge to be the best version of ourselves.

Men choose to become Masons for many reasons.  From fulfilling a family legacy to forming connections with our American founding fathers and kings that walked the earth hundreds of years ago.  From engaging on a personal journey of enlightenment to participating in philanthropy and community-building activities.  These are all valid and common reasons men begin the journey of Freemasonry. Though similar, all men have their own set of interests and personal goals which incite him to “knock” on the door of Freemasonry.

Some men go their entire lives knowing many Masons and feeling slighted for never having been invited to join the lodge.  Actually, no Mason has been invited to join a lodge and every Mason that ever was has come to Masonry out of their own free will and accord.  Essentially, all a man that meets the requirements below has to do, is knock on the door of Freemasonry and it will be opened to him.
