What is Freemasonry?

It is a system of morality, a way to make good men better, to help each individual develop to their fullest potential. It is a strong support for democracy and freedom, and it is an organization that improves mens' character.

It traces its origins to the Stone Mason Guilds of the 1500s. During the 1600 and 1700s, also called the Enlightenment, gentlemen joined the craft guild and transformed it into a fraternity. These “non-operative masons” adopted the tools and legends of stone masonry to teach moral, intellectual and spiritual lessons. Just as masons improved stone to build cathedrals, castles and other great buildings, Freemasons use symbols and allegories to build better men that create great societies.

Through the influence of good men such as George Washington & Benjamin Franklin, Freemasonry and its ideals continue to thrive around the world.

We have a saying that goes 2B1-Ask 1



Ohio Freemasonry is men who still believe in honor, integrity, truth and love for country. Men of respect, kindness and tolerance, fully accepting of our brothers’ religion, race, age, status or culture. Bound as one in the continual pursuit of light and knowledge to be the best version of ourselves.

The Craft teaches men to:

  • Act with civility and courtesy on all occasions

  • Practice one’s personal faith while allowing others to do the same

  • Respect and protect the privacy of others

  • Treat the least in society with the respect given to the favored and powerful

  • Help those who cannot help themselves

  • Care for friends and families in times of difficulty, most notably Brother Masons

  • Protect and prepare the next generation to live a better life than we know today

 If you see yourself in these words.

If you would like to be part of time-honored principles and traditions.

If you would like to build true friendships, often with like-minded men whom one may otherwise never meet … then Freemasonry may be for you.
