Eleven years before the Declaration of Independence was signed, Captain Benjamin Isaacs received a charter to make Masons in the city of Norwalk from the Provincial Grand Master in the Province of New York in America to be chartered St. John’s Lodge No. One at Norwalk in Connecticut. Our lodge was instituted on May 23, 1765 and to put it in perspective, our illustrious Brother George Washington was a young 33 years of age when our lodge was organized. When the Grand Lodge of Connecticut was formed 28 years later we were reconstituted St. John’s Lodge No. 6 at Norwalk and have continued to make men into Masons through war and peace, feast and famine for almost 250 years.

As Connecticut Freemasons we embrace the tenets of Friendship, Morality and Brotherly Love. We do this by using the teachings of Freemasonry to better ourselves, our community and each other. At our lodge we make Masons and here at our website we show you our history, activities and schedule of future events.

The Masonic Fraternity does not invite anyone to become a member, instead we wait patiently for the special man to knock on our door and seek admittance. Perhaps your visit here is that “knock” on our outer door.

Feel free to browse our site; investigate us and Freemasonry! See for yourself what we are doing here. We hope this site interests you into becoming a better man and joining the greatest and largest Fraternity in the world. Connecticut Freemasons: making a difference, here and around the world.
