About Our Lodge
1st Temple at Reddington, IN, Founded on March 28, 1853 📷
The charter was issued on June 20, 1853; and, on July 11, 1853, the Lodge raised three Brothers to the Sublime Degree of a Master Mason. The Lodge met on the second floor of a small general store owned by one of the charter members, Br. William M. Brown, who received $10 per year as rent. The first Worshipful Master of the Lodge was Rev. Br. Isaac Chivington, a large man (over six feet tall and weighing nearly three hundred pounds) who was serving as minister at Rockford Methodist Church when he became Master of the Lodge. Later, Rev. Br. Chivington moved West and carried the principles of Christianity and Freemasonry to the areas of Nebraska and Missouri, where he was called to the GAOTU in 1910.
