Prince Hall, one of Boston’s most prominent citizens during the revolutionary period, was the founder of the African Lodge of the Honorable Society of Free and Accepted Masons of Boston, the world’s first lodge of black Freemasonry and the first society in American history devoted to social, political, and economic improvement.

Learn how these humble beginnings grew into one of the oldest social and charitable organizations in the world. We have a thriving community of approximately 300,000 members throughout the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, and Liberia.
