LODGE TOUR  Part 4: "The Lodge Collection"

King Hiram's Lodge is indeed fortunate that virtually all of the hand written records dating back to 1795 have been carefully preserved and are available for all to see today.  In addition, we have in our collection the original Officers jewels made by Paul Revere, our original charter with Revere's signature still plainly visible, and countless documents, receipts, photographs and other artifacts.  Part of our master plan for future projects is to create a museum space in the Lodge to properly display this priceless collection.   For now however, please enjoy the following photographs, and check back frequently as more are included.
