Masonry has a long tradition in the Town of Methuen dating back to 1825 with the founding of Grecian Lodge. Not long after Grecian moved to the new Town of Lawrence, many Methuen Masons, convinced that Masonry will still flourish in their town, petitioned Grand Lodge in 1860 to start a new Lodge. They named it after one of our nation’s founding fathers, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, a former Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and a Mason, Bro. John Hancock.

Our lodge building is located in the center of the working class and growing Town of Methuen. We draw members from several communities on the north shore of Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire. The lodge currently has around 150 members and has started a new period of growth. Our members vary widely in age, experience, and background, providing the Lodge with a diverse group of men who can utilize their talents and learn new ones while serving the Lodge and the community.

We are highly involved, well-represented and active participants in state and regional activities, leadership, and training. We have a very close, supportive fraternal bond; our lodge is highly active in Masonic, social and community service events including Red Cross Blood Drives, MyChip events, monthly breakfasts, game nights, dinners, veteran’s programs, and various other events. Our events are fun, valued, and well attended by our members, their families, and the local community.

We also share a strong partnership and support of other lodges within and surrounding to the 11th Masonic district. We welcome the opportunity to help you learn more about Freemasonry in general and John Hancock Lodge in particular. Please feel free to contact us for more information.
