Welcome

to the Grand Lodge of North Carolina

On behalf of the brethren of North Carolina, welcome! Since the 18th century, the Freemasons of North Carolina have sought to unite good men of all backgrounds and make them better husbands, fathers, and citizens by encouraging and cultivating friendship, morality, and brotherly love. There is no singular definition of Freemasonry. Freemasonry is many different things to each man who joins the fraternity. For some it is a place to make friends and acquaintances. For others it is a place to engage in introspection or discuss philosophy. And, for others it is a place to practice charity and goodwill. Through each of these endeavors--and countless more--we strive to make our world a better place for all people. Read More

Grand Master's Message

Read the Grand Master's latest message in the new NC Mason:

By Grand Master David Wicker

As I reflect upon my answer to “What came you here to do,” I am compelled to consider the tenants of Mason’s profession, brotherly love, relief and truth. We are taught that truth is a divine attribute and the foundation of every virtue. To be good and true is the first lesson we are taught in Masonry. By brotherly love, we learn to regard the entire human species, without exception, as one family. Through relief, Masons are to sympathize with all who are suffering and to assist in restoring to them the peace of God. Applying these tenants, we learn that it is our duty to be charitable to all mankind. Through our charity, we can make a difference in the world; not only today, but in the future as well. You see, charity extends beyond the grave through the boundless realms of eternity.

    Brother at Eagle 'Nails' It!

    EDITOR'S COLUMN: I have been in the news business for decades. I’ve covered stories that ran in local papersviewed movie stars, crime kings, fat-cat CEOs and sitting U.S. presidents. I have covered plane crashes, major oil spills and devastating floods. I’ve covered some unprecedented things, some amazing things, some life-changing things. But I had never, not even once, interviewed a man about his toes. Until now.
