Sam B. Crawford Masonic Lodge Open House   

“The May 27, 2017  Sam B. Crawford Masonic Lodge Open House is a great opportunity for anyone interested in learning more about Freemasonry to meet and talk with Masons in their community. “Although many have heard of us, very few are aware that for over 275 years the "Masons" have been part of an unbroken tradition of great men who have changed our world in ways both big and small. Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Thurgood Marshall, and John Glenn, for example, all joined the Masons prior to achieving the greatness we recognize them for. There are countless other great men, whose names are not widely known, that made their families, workplaces, and communities better because they were Masons. I warmly invite the public to join us for a community Open House on Saturday May 27, 2017 10:00AM – 2:00PM at Sam B. Crawford Lodge  20625 Lodge Rd. New Caney Tx. 77357. Food and Refreshments will be served.

 10:00AM – 2:00PM


Curious about what a Lodge looks like?Do you have any questions for a Freemason? Wonder no longer. Come on by. 


What is Masonry?   Masonry, also known as Freemasonry, has been a part of American life for over 250 years and is America’s largest and oldest fraternity.  Masons are people who work together to improve themselves and the community around them.    


Does a Freemason work with stone?  Freemasons are not stone masons, however we use stone mason skills and tools as symbols to teach morality. Masonry is filled with men from all walks of life and united regardless of creed, race, or religion.  


What is a Lodge?  In Texas, a Lodge is a group of Masons that were given a Charter by the Grand Lodge of Texas.  Many people believe that the Lodge is the building in which Masons have their meetings. 


How old is Freemasonry?  The first Grand Lodge, made up of four Lodges, met on June 24th 1717 in a tavern called Goose and Gridiron in London. This is the earliest known Masonic meeting, any dates before that has been a great subject of debate for Masons and non-Masons alike. 


What are the secrets of Masonry? Well, a Mason can only tell another Mason the secrets. However, all the secrets have to do with the ways a Mason will be able to indentify if another person is a Mason or not. 


Is Masonry a religion?  Masonry is not a religion. However people from many different religions and moral backgrounds can join.  Masons try to better themselves by adhering to their own personal belief system, be it a religion, philosophy or moral code. 


Sam B Crawford Members hope the open and congenial atmosphere of the Fall Open House will help dispel rumors, misinformation and fanciful ideas that have dogged Freemasonry for decades and are perpetuated in media by the success of books and movies like DaVinci Code and The Lost Symbol.
