Welcome To Essex Lodge, Salem MA

Thank You for visiting Essex Lodge. Instituted in 1779 and operating within the 9th Masonic District, Essex Lodge holds a rich history of tradition, brotherhood, charity and community service. As we enter our 237th year, our rapidly growing and active young membership ensures us an equally rich future.

WHO WE ARE: A fundamental of Freemasonry is openness to good men of any faith, race or background. We are a living example of this, which is demonstrated by the diversity of our members.

We are police officers, clergy, lawyers, doctors, craftsmen, artists and more. Essex Lodge has brought together men from all walks of life to share in a unique brotherhood and create lifelong friendships that otherwise might not be possible.
