Artist's Description

The two Lodges most closely associated with George Washington are Fredericksburg Lodge at Fredericksburg, Virginia (his Mother Lodge) and Alexandria-Washington Lodge at Alexandria, Virginia, where he was elected Charter Master under the Grand Lodge of Virginia. No precise date can be found when the Lodge at Fredericksburg began. The date of its first meeting is usually found as September 1, 1752, under a dispensation from the Provincial Grand Lodge of the Colony of Massachusetts. The Lodge was granted a charter on July 21, 1758, by the Grand Lodge of Scotland.

Through the generosity of Washington’s family and friends, Alexandria-Washington Lodge became the repository of many artifacts pertaining to George Washington and the Washington family. The Lodge operated a museum where the public could see much of this collection and learn about George Washington. But, over time, the lodge rooms were deemed inadequate for the display and storage of the memorabilia. A fire in the lodge in 1871 destroyed many the invaluable and significant Washington artifacts.
