We learn from Falmouth tradition, as well as from the archives of Grand Lodge of Massachusetts that it was in the heart of a few outstanding men consisting of a Doctor and a few Sea Captains to build a Masonic Lodge in Falmouth. These men petitioned M.W. Paul Revere to constitute a lodge; however, it was M.W. Josiah Bartlett who finally granted Marine Lodge its Charter on March 13, 1798.
Marine Lodge is the twenty-fifth oldest lodge in the State of Massachusetts and the third oldest on Cape Cod (King Hiram’s Lodge in Provincetown and Adams Lodge in Wellfleet being the oldest on the Cape.)
The Lodge hall provides facilities for the meetings of the Order of Eastern Star as well as other groups that have had the need to use the building for various meetings throughout the years. Physically, the Lodge continues to occupy the same site as the original building that was lovingly constructed in 1801 and reconstructed in 1935-1936. In 1990, the building was greatly enhanced by the addition of air conditioning in the Lodge room. In 1991, new vinyl siding and new thermal windows added to the beauty of the building.
