History of East Fork Lodge

East Fork Lodge #650 Ancient Free and Accepted Masons was granted a charter from The Grand Lodge of Texas on January 18, 1887 and was set to work on February 18, 1887 in the Lone Tree (Brown Town) Community.

The Lodge was built at Brown Town and, following Masonic custom, the ground floor was given for use as a school building and the name of the community was changed to Lone Elm. The school was designated in deed as District No.63, but was always referred to as the Lone Elm School.

There were 24 charter members, one of which dimitted April 9, 1887 and one died July 19, 1887. Two new members were raised in May and June of 1887, after the charter was granted, bringing the membership to 26. East Fork Lodge currently has an active membership in excess of 100 members and growing.

The Lodge met, for many years, upstairs above what is now Wylie Flower and Gift Shop at 129 N. Ballard. In late 1980, construction was begun on a new building at the current location and completed in March of 1982. The cornerstone of the new Lodge building was leveled in Masonic tradition on June 12, 1982.

A dedication ceremony for the new Lodge building was held on Saturday, November 3, 1984. The ceremony was attended by members of East Fork Lodge, Grand Lodge of Texas members and officers, past and present, and members of the Wylie community. The ceremony was presided over by the Grand Master of Texas Masons, R.H. (Bob) Waters.

A Mason (or Freemason) is a member of a fraternity known as Masonry (or Freemasonry). A fraternity is a group of men who join together because: There are things they want to do in the world. ... They enjoy being together with men they like and respect.

What is the Purpose of Freemasonry? The basic purpose is to make "better men out of good men", better fathers, better husbands, better brothers, better sons, and better citizens. We try to place emphasis on the individual man by strengthening his character, improving his moral and spiritual outlook and broadening his mental horizons.
