|Officers||What is Freemasonry?||Stated Communication|
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 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.
George Washington, Richard Pryor, Mark Twain, Ben Franklin, John Brown, Mozart, Beethoven, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, Winston Churchill Harry Truman, Irving Berlin, Simon Bolivar, Rick Wakeman, Thurgood Marshall …
These men and thousands more have something in common.
