[[[p]]]Mount Holyoke Lodge was chartered on March 30, 1869, by Most Worshipful William Gardner, Grand Master of Masons in Massachusetts, with the Reverend George E. Fisher as its first Worshipful Master. Prior to the granting of this charter, Masons residing in South Hadley were obliged to attend meetings at the Mount Tom Lodge in Holyoke by crossing the Connecticut River by boat, sometimes under the worst possible weather conditions, due to the fact that there were no bridges connecting the two towns at that time. The new lodge was first organized in an old school building on School Street, and has since been in six locations.[[[br /]]][[[br /]]]Mount Holyoke Lodge has been honored to receive the Grand Master’s Award for Outstanding Achievement in three of the last five years. This award is typically given to less than 10 Lodges statewide each year. This honor is a testament to the hard work and support of the Brethren, the dedication of the officers, and the sense of unity and affection for Mount Holyoke Lodge that distinguish our membership and makes Mount Holyoke Lodge such a special place to gather, work, and enjoy the good fellowship and camaraderie that are the hallmark of our Lodge.[[[br /]]][[[br /]]]We have been meeting in our current location since 1914. Today we have about 230 members.[[[/p]]]
