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

    • an instance of something becoming popular, active, or important again.
    • a new production of an old play or similar work.

For the past 20 months, we have been reeling from the punches of a global pandemic and we may not fully know the true impact for years to come. Some of our members have become indifferent and have gotten out of the habit of attending lodge meetings, while others are truly concerned about potential exposure and have chosen to limit their activities.
