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.

Grand Lodge ClaymoreThe Most Worthy Grand Master Vesper brought the official claymore of the Grand Lodge of Washington, used in important ceremonies, to North Bend for the re-dedication.

The fraternity first met as a lodge in North Bend in 1912, and was granted an official constitution from the Grand Lodge in 1913. Those first North Bend Masons made history when they gathered in the North Bend railway depot in January of 1912. After 100 years their dream of a permanent Masonic Lodge in North Bend continues.

Initially each of eleven men pledged $1,000 for the construction and furnishing of an appropriate home. The building is a historical landmark and one of the oldest buildings in North Bend.
