Essex Lodge History

Our Essex Lodge

Though the name has changed over time, Essex Lodge #7 has been serving the Masonic Brotherhood and our Community since 1827. Essex Lodge was originally known as Newark Lodge #7, one of the oldest lodges in the history of the state. Through various mergers and consolidations, Essex #7 rose to prominence in Caldwell, NJ and continues to serve the Western Essex area.

We have several charitable programs that our lodge is involved in. These include blood drives, educator of the year, participation in community events, scholarships awards, etc. We strive to make good men better men, better husbands, and better fathers. We look to improving ourselves through masonic ritual and education.
