Masons Gather For 100th Anniversary In Tennessee

Freemasonry developed in western Europe in the late 16th century as a fraternal organization and was well-established in Great Britain by the mid-17th century. Grand Lodges supported affiliated Lodges that arose in individual cities. By the time the United States became a nation, many masonic lodges existed in every city and attracted many members from all levels of society.

On June 24, 1912 the Free & Associated Masons, Cumberland Lodge No. 8 of Nashville, Tennessee held a banquet commemorating the 100th anniversary of the founding of their lodge at the Maxwell House Hotel.
