Welcome to Doylestown Lodge

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.

UNO Dough Rai$er

Join us Thursday December 12th for an UNO Fundraiser at 611 and Almshouse location. Up to 20% of the proceeds will come back to the lodge to purchase holiday poinsettia plants for our widows (which members will deliver in person in December).  If you cannot go, we ask that you please pass the ticket onto someone who can – anyone can submit the enclosed ticket with their meal. UNO is open from 11am until 9pm, and both dine-in and take-out orders count towards our total. Thank you for your support.

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.
