Masonic Lodges around the Granite State will open their doors on Saturday, October 20, 2018 to provide the public an opportunity to learn more about our centuries-old Fraternity.
The goal of our statewide Open House is to heighten public awareness of Freemasonry’s members, beliefs, history, and community work.
Masonic Lodges across the state will open promptly at 9 a.m. and remain open until 3 p.m. Masons will be on-hand to answer questions and give guided tours of our beautiful and meaningful meeting rooms.
Members of organizations affiliated with Masonry including the Scottish Rite, York Rite, Shrine, Order of the Eastern Star, International Order of the Rainbow for Girls, and DeMolay International will also be in attendance in many locations.
Freemasonry is a system of morality and ethics that transcends political, social, and religious boundaries. It is a voluntary association of men who actively seek to improve themselves according to the principles of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth.

More About Freemasonry
Freemasonry is the world’s oldest Fraternity with documented origins dating back to “Operative” guilds of Masons in Europe in the late 16th Century. Freemasonry provides men a framework upon which to improve themselves and their world. Freemasonry is not a religion but requires its members to have a belief in a Supreme Being. Freemasonry has existed in New Hampshire since 1735.
