Welcome to the 6th Masonic District
The 6th Masonic District is comprised of seven Lodges meeting in Norwood and Westwood. The Lodges meeting in Norwood are: Lafayette / Dover, Orient and Union, the Lodges meeting in Westwood are: Celestial, Prospect, Rabboni and West Roxbury / Dorchester. The original communities of these various Lodges included: Dedham, Dorchester, Dover, East Boston, Hyde Park, Jamaica Plain, Norwood, Roslindale, Roxbury and West Roxbury. While the 6th Masonic District geographically encompasses the towns of Norwood and Westwood, we draw our membership from, and we support the towns in the surrounding communities.
The 6th Masonic District is one of 32 Districts in Massachusetts under the Grand Lodge of Masons in Massachusetts. The Grand Lodge of Masons in Massachusetts was formed in 1733, and is the Oldest Grand Lodge in North America and in the Western Hemisphere.
We hope that you will enjoy learning about Masonry in Massachusetts, about the Lodges of the 6th Masonic District, and about our various events and projects.
