Welcome to the Mankato Freemasons

309 S. 2nd Street • Mankato, Minnesota   56001 • 507-387-2665


For over 163 years, Masonry has played an important part in the social order of Minnesota. We attempt to carry on the legacy of our brothers, Doctors William and Charles Mayo, Harold Stassen and Hubert Humphrey, among many other distinguished Minnesotans.

We are men who believe in a Supreme Being, but may call Him by many names: God, Allah, Yahweh, Jesus, or the Great Spirit.

Religious tolerance has been a hallmark of Masonry from its inception.


Our Lodge has been in Mankato for over 150 years. We are in the oldest building in town, and the Lodge has been in it for over 130 years. Freemasonry is the world’s oldest fraternal organization. While we do engage in philanthropic and service endeavors, we exist primarily for brotherhood and to “make good men better.”


If you have ever wondered about becoming a Mason, you should know that we are not permitted to ask you to join; however, if you ask a Mason

for information, he will be more than happy to provide it for you. We want you to want to become a Mason.

We are not a “secret” organization; we are an organization with a few secrets

Most of what we do we will

be happy to share with you. If

you want more information, contact us at the phone number above, or email us.
