A warm welcome to our website! If you’re a Vermont Freemason – or looking at the possibility of becoming one – we hope you’ll find our little corner of cyber-space to be of value. Freemasonry’s roots go back over 300 years and although our Grand Lodge here in Vermont has existed only since 1794, we’ve been a force for good in a great many individual lives and have achieved a long history of positive community involvement during these past 215+ years. We’re proud to be Freemasons and proud of our home state. From our superb snowy winters to our gorgeous spring blooms; from our unbeatable summers which make this a place to be for so many during their vacations on through our spectacular fall foliage, Vermont is a truly wonderful lifestyle – and when we blend Freemasonry with it, it’s absolutely unmatchable.
For our members: we are continuously striving to keep this site vibrant and valuable for you. If there’s something you’d like us to have here, just drop a note to the Webmaster and we’ll see if we can make it happen. We’re embarking on a program to provide a ‘one-stop’ resource for all your needs.
If you’re not a Mason, we’ve got lots of good stuff about Freemasonry for you here also. If you’re just moving here and want to become involved with your community or if you’ve been here ‘forever’ but somehow just never managed to get involved, now is the time. Freemasonry is many things: a place for personal development, an active supporter of charitable programs, and so much more. It is unlike any other club or program you’ll ever encounter combining the richness of historical ritual with the firm and steadfast friendship which brings us together as ‘Brothers’ in thought, word and deed. It is difficult to describe but amazingly easy to enjoy. We welcome you to browse our site to learn more. Freemasonry doesn’t solicit membership so it’s up to you to initiate the process. Click here to get more detailed information on how to petition and become a part of the greatness that is Freemasonry!
Freemasonry is the world's oldest and largest fraternity. It is founded on the tenets of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth. Its members are encouraged to practice Temperance, Fortitude, Justice and Charity. We come from all walks of life and are actively involved in our communities. Freemasonry is, indeed, a 'way of life'. Does this appeal to you? To learn more about Freemasonry in Vermont, please contact us. We do not recruit members: you need to make the first step - but if you do and you meet our membership requirements, we'll be happy to welcome you to the friendship and fellowship of Masons throughout the world.
We are PROUD TO BE MASONS!
