Dayton Masonic Center

*Stated Meetings are 1st and 3rd Friday of the month at 7:30 pm*

      Masonry is the world's first and largest fraternal organization, and is based on the belief that each man has a responsibility to help make the world a better place.  Through our culture of philanthropy, we make a profound difference for our brothers, our families, our communities, and our future.

                                                  Brotherly love, relief, and truth


      What makes Masonry great? It's the principles, precepts and teachings. The only way to join the largest and greatest fraternity in the world is to ask.  For Generations, every man who has ever become a Freemason has done so by asking willfully of his own accord.  What kind of man makes a good Mason?  If you are a man of good moral character and are interested in joining us, we are interestted in you.  If you would like to know more about freemasonry, we have the answers.  As the worlds oldest fraternal organization, we have thousands of years of experience.  Ask and you shall recieve. 


      If you are a prospective candidate, no doubt you are teeming with questions, not only about John Durst Lodge, but about freemasonry as a whole.  We are here to help you.  Perhaps you are curious about our traditions and rituals.  You can only learn what it truly means to be a Mason, by becoming one.  We wecolme your petition to join us.  Perhaps you're searching for a place to belong, where you can form strong bonds of fellowship and brotherhood.  We welcome you not only to our website, but to our lodge as well.


      Brother Masons from outside this area, who  wish to visit John Durst Lodge, please contact us and we will make the necessary arrangments. 


      The Dayton Masonic Center is a beautiful structure, and we enjoy its majesty, you are always welcome to tour the facility overlooking downtown.  All non masons MUST make arrangements for a tour of the facility.


                    Remember there are no strangers here; just friends you haven't met.
