Since 1850, the Masonic Temple at 55 East State Street has been the central hub of York Rite Freemasonry in Bucks County. With over 570 members, Doylestown is one of the largest and most active fraternal lodges in the state of Pennsylvania. As the old saying goes: “My boy, if you are not a Doylestown Freemason, you are strictly NOT IN IT.”
Brother Hunnicutt came across a rare find – a trowel set from the lodge’s own 75th anniversary back in 1925. He was able to rescue the set and it is on its way home.
The lodge was constituted back in 1850, although the current building wasn’t in use until 1859. The next anniversary (175th) will be in 2025 where the anniversary set will include 10 years of master medals.
The 169th Anniversary Annual Banquet will be held on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at The Bucks Club in Jamison, PA.
