The Tyrian-Ashler-Acacia Masonic Lodge located at 27 Eastern Avenue in Gloucester will be holding an Open House event on Saturday October 19th from 9am through 3pm. Very many curios and local historical items pertaining to the Lodge will be available for public viewing. Local Freemasons obtained a Charter from the Grand Lodge in Edinburgh Scotland in 1770 to enable them to work as a regular and recognized Masonic System as it was at that time. A copy of the original Charter, recognized by Paul Revere and with his signature will be available for public viewing. The Lodge in Gloucester is one of the oldest continuously operating Masonic Lodges in the United States and now functions under the umbrella of the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts located at 186, Tremont Street, Boston, which claims the distinction of being the third oldest Grand Lodge in the world. The Fraternity, which attempts in Rituals to balance an understanding of Science and Spirituality, is known worldwide for its Charitable and Philanthropic endeavors. Some recent estimates claim the Freemasons distribute many millions of dollars on a regular basis to scholarships, hospitals for children, burns hospitals, eye and sight foundations. More information can be discovered at the website for the Lodge at www.tyrianashleracacia.net
