Open House to Enlighten, Educate, and Inform

Local Freemasons Welcome Public October 16th


Rehoboth, Massachusetts – October 17, 2020– Joining with Masonic lodges across the Commonwealth, the Freemasons from Eastern Star Lodge, A.F. & A.M., 243 Winthrop St. (Rt. 44) Rehoboth, MA will open their doors to the public on Saturday, October 16th, from 9 am until 3 pm. If you’ve ever wondered who the Freemasons are, whether they are the descendants of the Knights Templars, or what the inside of their buildings look like, here’s your chance to find out!

More than 200 lodges will be hosting Open Houses to help the public gain a better understanding of Freemasonry and to demonstrate the positive impact it has on its members, their families, and their communities. Members will provide tours of their building, talk about Freemasonry’s history, discuss its ceremonies, and what value members derive from their participation in the fraternity.

Eastern Star Lodge was constituted in 1924 and has met regularly on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at the Anawan Grange Hall. The former Netop Lodge of Seekonk Massachusetts was welcomed to Eastern Star Lodge through a merger in 1996; bringing the two communities together.

Freemasonry, the world’s oldest and largest fraternity, seeks to bring together men of every country, religion, race, background, and opinion in order to develop the bonds of friendship between them. Freemasons help others, not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because it helps us grow. We value honor, integrity, and believe there’s always more to learn in life. Freemasonry in Massachusetts is comprised of 25,000 members in more than 200 different lodges throughout the Commonwealth. For additional information, please call 1.508.738.1094, or visit
