To Be One. Ask One.

Welcome to Olde No. 4

The Franklin Masonic Lodge has existed for over 200 years in Saint Albans. It’s called nostalgically “Olde No. 4” because it was one of the original lodges of Freemasonry of Vermont when Freemasonry was first established in the state. We’re now one of many state lodges with a state membership totally over 6000 brothers.
