You can see the lodge on special occasions, but if you are a Mason, come to the Fredericksburg Museum. The Masons have loaned many items for long-term viewing, including the Gilbert Stuart painting of Washington, the bible used at his induction, several chairs including a Grand Master chair, and numerous aprons and ritual items. I have visited the Lodge on... More

Very impressive memorial with historic artifacts and lovely artwork and sculpture on display. The tour is highly recommended. The tour guide is very knowledgeable and will answer questions thoughtfully and thoroughly. Fantastic view of Washington from the top level.

The GW Masonic Museum and Mount Vernon are not Fredericksburg but located in Alexandria which is about 40 miles north. Both are worth the trip! Be sure to check the website to catch a tour at the museum and allow 1.5 -2 hours. You could easily spend half a day at Mount Vernon.

We stopped by the George Washington's Masonic Museum while they were digging for more artifacts. To actually see and walk where George's Washington's home once stood. The caretaker at the museum was very knowledgeable and I appreciate her expertise on George Washington's history.

Interesting because my daddy, his brothers and his father were all Masons. But the photo you have isn't the masonic Museum.
