Essex Lodge History

Our Lodge

Though the name has changed over time, Essex Lodge #7 has been serving the Masonic Brotherhood and our Community since 1827.  We have several charitable programs that our lodge is involved in. These include blood drives, educator of the year, participation in community events, etc.

If you are interested in the Masonic Fraternity and our Lodge specifically, feel free to contact us online.
