Together we make a profound difference

Celebrating California Masonry

Each month, the George Washington Masonic National Memorial in Washington, D.C. highlights one United States grand lodge with a special exhibit in its historic lobby. This February, the Grand Lodge of California is on display!

Our exhibit focuses on three key areas of pride for our fraternity: our diversity, innovation, and growth. An image of Emile Norman’s endomosaic mural that graces the lobby of the California Masonic Memorial Temple is positioned as a colorful, eye-catching backdrop.

The Grand Lodge is also featured in the George Washington Masonic National Memorial blog. Read our story.

About the George Washington Masonic National Memorial
The George Washington Masonic National Memorial is a memorial and museum, an active Masonic temple, a research library, a cultural space, a community and performing arts center, and an important regional landmark.

Built in the 1920s, this magnificent nine-story neoclassical structure has been erected and maintained by Masons throughout the United States as an expression of the high esteem in which the memory of George Washington is held within the Masonic fraternity, and to preserve the history and heritage of American Freemasonry.

Its mission is to inspire humanity through education to emulate and promote the virtues, character, and vision of George Washington – as a man, Mason, and father of our country.
