This site is about Michigan Masons, members of the Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Michigan. Freemasonry is first and foremost a fraternity. It is also “A Way of Life.” The brotherhood of man under the fatherhood of God is primary – this means that its activities should always be designed to promote friendship, morality and brotherly love. Many men have wondered just what the masons are all about and what it means to become a member of the fraternal lodge.

 That's not a surprising question. Even though Masons (Freemasons) are members of the largest and oldest fraternity in the world, FREEMASONRY, and even though almost everyone has a father or grandfather or uncle who was a Mason, many people aren't quite certain just who Masons are or what freemasonry is about.


The answer is simple. Masons (or Freemasons) are members of a fraternity known as Freemasonry or Masonry. A fraternity is a group of men (just as a sorority is a group of women) who join together because:
  • There are things they want to do in the world.
  • There are things they want to do "inside their own minds."
  • They enjoy being together with men they like and respect.

No one knows just how old freemasonry is because the actual origins have been lost in time. Probably, it arose from the guilds of stone masons who built the castles and cathedrals of the Middle Ages. Possibly, they were influenced by the Knights Templar, a group of Christian warrior monks formed in 1118 to help protect pilgrims making trips to the Holy Land.


In 1717, Freemasonry members created a formal organization in England when the first Grand Lodge was formed. A Grand Lodge is the administrative body in charge of Freemasonry in some geographical area. In the United States, there is a Grand Lodge of Freemasonry in each state and the District of Columbia. In Canada, there is a Grand Lodge of Freemasonry in each province. Local organizations of Freemasony are called lodges. There are freemasonry lodges in most towns, and large cities usually have several. There are about 13,200 lodges in the United States.
Freemasons are a unique institution that has been a major part of community life in America for over two hundred and fifty (250) years.  It is America’s largest and oldest fraternity, and one that continues to be an important part of many men’s personal lives and growth.

The fraternity of masons are an organization of men bound together with a philosophy of moral standards, mutual understanding and brotherhood in which all men are on a level and equal.
