Welcome to Brainard No. 102!

While the Grand Lodge of Connecticut was chartered in 1789, we received Grand Lodge Dispensation on June 11th, 1867 and received our Charter at that time. While many of our members are from Niantic, Waterford, New London, and nearby towns, we have members throughout Central Connecticut and across a variety of locations.

The Brothers of Brainard Lodge meet @ 7:30pm on the Second and Fourth Tuesdays monthly, except July and August.

As are all Masons, we are dedicated to making our communities better places for our neighbors in need. Our charitable contributions include the local Food Pantry, College Scholarships, The Connecticut Masonic Foundation, Boy Scouts of America, and other worthy causes. One of our longest running traditions is the Annual Thanksgiving Breakfast which we host the Sunday before Thanksgiving.

We also host an Annual Corned Beef and Cabbage dinner to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

We are located at:
32 Society Rd, Niantic, CT 06357

Mailing address:
P.O. Box 120
Niantic, CT 06357-0120
Please address correspondence accordingly.

On behalf of WM Richard Miller and the officers and brethren of Brainard Lodge #102, welcome! If you are not yet a Mason, feel free to stop by (contact for details). We would be happy to let you know what it's all about!
