The Grand Lodge of Virginia granted a dispensation for a Masonic Lodge to be constituted in Lovettsville on September 22, 1865. A charter was granted on December 13th of the same year and the lodge was named Freedom No. 199. The new lodge met on the first, third, and fifth Fridays of each month.
Built in 1869, the current lodge hall is the oldest in the Second Masonic District and the southern least lodge in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The lodge went dark in 1890 and remained so until January 18, 1892 when it received dispensation to open under a new charter as Freedom Lodge No. 118.
Stated meetings are conducted the first Friday of each month at 8p with a dinner proceeding at 7p.
More on the Lodge history is found on the Grand Lodge of Virginia web page.
Stated Communications of Freedom Lodge are held at 8pm the first Friday of each month.
Dinner precedes the meeting beginning at 7pm.
We look forward to you joining us.
