FreeMasonry is a fraternity of like minded men who put aside their political, social and religious differences to meet on an equal plane - what Masons call "the Level" - to better themselves, their community and their bretheren. 

Stone Masons

Freemasonry grew out of guilds of stone masonry craftsmem, called operative masonry. Freemasonry now focuses on how to make good men better, described as speculative masonry - now very few actually do brick or stone work.




A Mason must be a man of an adult age, have a sound reputation, be well-recommended by his peers and believe in a supreme being regardless of religious orientation.


You must either know a Mason and ask that person about Masonry or come to a Masonic Lodge and spend some time getting to know the Masons there. Personal identity, character and background are important to Masons and their fraternal bretheren.

Our Scroll Reveal feature is powered by the script found here: https://github.com/julianlloyd/scrollReveal.js. The script allows you to add "data-scroll-reveal" to HTML elements for on page scroll animations. We recommend adding to DIVs over SPAN etc as DIVs can move vs SPAN tags just fading in. Once you add the code to a DIV refresh a page or scroll down and it will animate in. It will only do this once until you refresh the page again. The great feature about the script is you can use plain English to describe how you'd like to animate your HTML element.

Example of this in action (refresh this page if you didn't see it already):

Enter from the left and move up 50px in 1.33 seconds.
Enter from the bottom after 1 second.
Wait 2.5 seconds and then ease-in-out 100px.

Code used for the above:

<div data-scroll-reveal="enter left and move 50px over 1.33s"> Enter from the left and move up 50px in 1.33 seconds. </div>

<div data-scroll-reveal="enter from the bottom after 1s"> Enter from the bottom after 1 second. </div>

<div data-scroll-reveal="wait 2.5s and then ease-in-out 100px"> Wait 2.5 seconds and then ease-in-out 100px. </div>

The Map it with Google module is displayed on this page. Simply enter your address and the module uses the Google API to display a map with a marker to the address. A user simply clicks the marker and they are prompted with a popup box to get directions. Clicking "Get Directions" will take you to google maps with your business address already entered so all they have to do is enter their address to get directions. You can also specify the size of the map and whether or not to enable or disable certain controls.
The floating menu feature is a great way for your users to easily navigate your website! The floating menu will show at the top of your browser once the screen reaches a certain point. You can determine the exact point at which this occurs via the template specific area of Vertex. NOTE: This is a Vertex addition and is not guaranteed to work with all Vertex Templates. Some custom CSS may need to be adjusted per template. This feature is not supported by IE7/8.

Features at a glance:

  • Set a background image to the menu, gradient or solid color
  • Set to snap or smooth scroll in
  • Determine at which point as you scroll down your page that the menu drops in
  • and many more features, just check out the screenshot below

Admin area of the floating menu:
