The history of North Texas and the history of Masonry in North Texas are one and the same. The first settlers to the North Texas area arrived in the 1840’s. The first Masonic Lodge located in the area that would become the City of Plano, Texas was chartered in 1859 and ceased operations in 1888. The second Masonic Lodge was chartered six years later in 1894 and continues its operations today. By the turn of the century, there were over 30 lodges in the North Texas area. With a tradition spanning more than 147 years in Plano, more than 170 years in Texas and more than 300 years in the United States of America, Masons have played an important part in the cultural, social, economic, and political development of communities throughout North Texas and our Nation. The North Texas Masonic Historical Museum & Library houses and preserves this history to utilize and disseminate this collective knowledge for Masons, historians, scholars and the public.
Open every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm except for holidays.
