Freemasoning at Solomon’s Lodge in Savannah, Georgia

The Old Savannah Cotton Exchange is one of Savannah’s most historic and well known landmarks. Established in 1886, the Romanesque terra cotta building stands as a testament to the city’s past as a one-time leading cotton seaport on the east coast. Now known as Freemason’s Hall, the building is home to Solomon’s Masonic Lodge No. 1, F. & A.M., the oldest operating Masonic lodge in North America. Best known as the Mother Lodge of Georgia by masons all across the state, the building was opened to tourists for the first time in 2010, making it a must-see when visiting Savannah.
