Grand Lodge of Colorado

Most Worshipful Grand Master of Masons in Colorado
Welcome to the Website for the Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of Colorado. This site is designed to give the viewer access to information concerning the History, Lodges and various functions of the Grand Lodge and the local lodges that are in this Jurisdiction.
Freemasonry is the oldest fraternal organization in the world and came to Colorado with the gold miners in the middle 1800’s. The first Masonic meeting took place at the confluence of the South Platte and Cherry Creek rivers in 1859. The Grand Lodge of Colorado was formed in 1861 and has been in existence since that time. There are 129 individual lodges in the State of Colorado and are located from corner to corner of the State and everywhere in between.
The goal of Freemasonry is to “Make good men Better”. Better Husbands, Fathers, Sons, Civil Leaders and better men overall. This is done by presenting through allegories and symbolism, in our obligations, the lessons that have been sent down to us from times past and are still an important part of life in maintaining a civilized society today.
If you have an interest in learning more about our beloved Fraternity, please look, on this website, for the Lodge nearest you and contact the Master or Secretary who will be delighted to talk with you and answer any questions you may have, which I am sure will be many.
I am looking forward to a very positive year for Freemasonry in 2013 and would welcome all to contact me if they have any questions or I can be of assistance.
