Welcome to Grand Lodge

2017 a Year of Masonic Milestones

In 2017, the Masonic fraternity worldwide will celebrate the 300th anniversary of the formation of the first truly Masonic grand lodge on June 24, 1717 in London, England. The Grand Lodge of Ohio will celebrate the 125th anniversary of the laying of the cornerstone of the Ohio Masonic Home “castle” on the Springfield campus.

While these milestones are an opportunity for the celebration of and the reflection on the past, they also provide opportunities for Freemasons to look towards the future – ever remembering that they are called to nobler deeds, higher thoughts, and greater achievements.
