DC Freemason is a history blog that features stories about interesting Masons, events, and places around the District of Columbia.
Freemasonry is a fraternal organization that traces its origins back to 18th century. The first local Masonic lodge was formed in Georgetown in 1789, one year before the establishment of the District. The society later spread across DC. Its membership helped develop the Nation's Capital into a vibrant and international community.
