For centuries, Freemasons have contributed to the communities in which they live through the principles of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth. Freemasonry has existed in New Hampshire since 1735, and many of the leading citizens of our state have been Freemasons. Being a member of the oldest and largest fraternal order in the world is a rewarding and educational experience. Our charitable activities are many and varied: the Shriners’ Hospitals for Children, support of medical research, scholarships, programs for child identification and combating drug abuse, the Scottish Rite Learning Centers, and quiet, local charity. Freemasons are committed to helping those who are less fortunate, and in the process we are building a better and safer world.

If you are a New Hampshire Mason, we hope that this web site will prove a useful tool and will improve the flow of information between you and your Grand Lodge. If you are a Mason visiting or moving to New Hampshire, we hope that this web site will assist you if you wish to contact a New Hampshire Lodge. If you are a non-Mason, we hope that this web site will assist you in learning about Freemasonry.

My Brethren and friends, it has been said for a number of years now, by Masons everywhere, that our Fraternity is experiencing a renaissance, and that we, as the current holders of the long Masonic legacy, have been handed a great opportunity. We stand here today, in 2013, with the world open to us, and the ability to steer Freemasonry for generations to come. How to start?….The question we all ask, to so many responses. Certainly, we must ask ourselves how Freemasonry has not only existed, but succeeded for so long, when so many other worthy organizations have been left in the mists of history. How has the world perceived us, as [...]
