Organized in 1979, we are Maine's only research lodge.
With over 180 members spanning the country and Canada, we are dedicated to searching for more light in Masonry via research, study, discussion, presentation and publishing.
We aim to to enable the Masonic explorer in all of us and satisfy our Masonic curiosity, while learning from each other. We deal not only with the historical and philosophical aspects of Masonry, but also with the challenges confronting the Craft.
In 2008 our work earned us the Mark Twain Award for Excellence in Masonic Awareness sponsored by the Masonic Service Association. We were the first research lodge in the country to be so honored.

Unlike many Masonic research lodges and societies, we do not have a particular focus of study, but instead let our members determine our work via their interests.
Currently, this includes returning to publishing again with a new collection of Masonic writings by Maine Masons. Tentative release is December 2017 and more information will be posted here. The range of our work is as vast as the dimensions of the lodge and we welcome you to become a part of it all.
