Categories: Fraternal Organizations


Freemasonry is one of the oldest known fraternal organizations in the world. It is said that Freemasons trace the roots of their origins to the stonemasons guilds of England and Scotland. By 1730, Freemasonry was already well established in the Eastern United States. It is believed that they were also established in Canada by the late 1700s.

The degrees of freemasonry retain the three grades of medieval craft guilds, those of Apprentice, Journeyman or fellow (now called Fellowcraft), and Master Mason. These are the degrees offered by Blue Lodge Freemasonry. Members of these organisations are known as Freemasons or Masons. There are additional degrees, which vary with locality and jurisdiction, and are usually administered by different bodies than the Blue Lodge degrees.
