Continental Lodge No. 287
Free and Accepted Masons
Of The Grand Lodge State of New York
Many of our nations early patriots were Freemasons, as well as thirteen signers of the Constitution and fifteen Presidents of the United States, beginning with George Washington.
Today, the more than four million Freemasons around the world come from virtually every occupation and profession. Within the Fraternity however, we all meet as equals. We come from diverse political ideologies, but we meet as friends. We come from virtually every religious belief, but we believe in one God.
One of the most fascinating aspects of Freemasonry has been: how so many men, from so many different walks of life, can meet together in peace, never have political or religious debates, always conduct their affairs in harmony and friendship, and call each other a Brother!
