From 1791 there have been at least seven Masonic Lodges either proposed or erected on Martha's Vineyard. Our ancient records enable us to show with apparent conclusiveness that the first Scottish Rite body in Massachusetts was King Solomon Lodge of Perfection, existing in Holmes Hole, on Martha's Vineyard, from 1791 to 1797.
Martha's Vineyard Masonic Lodges
by Dwight W. Robb

Martha's Vineyard Lodge was organized in Tisbury in 1859 and chartered in 1860. Members thereof petitioned to organize Oriental Lodge in Edgartown, which was chartered in 1866. The two lodges began to share the present lodge building in 1984, and on January 29, 1994 consolidated as Oriental-Martha's Vineyard Lodge.

The Lodge room is named in honor of our departed Brother M.W. Donald Warren Vose, Grand Master of Masons in Massachusetts 1973–1975.
