Celebrating 275 years of brotherhood, the National Heritage Museum has mounted The Grand Lodge of Masons in Massachusetts. The exhibition explores the history of Freemasonry in the Western Hemisphere through objects and artifacts collected over three centuries. The people, places, and events that form the Masonic story are pulled together by the selected material. The Bee has a full review of the exhibition which includes a concise primer on the brotherhood.
