Details

In June 1909 Lodge Hornsby, No 262, was founded by local masons. This book provides a brief outline of the history of Freemasonry in general and then follows the Lodge's development from the earliest railway-dominated days in Hornsby. The initial meetings in the School of Arts; the building of the Hornsby Masonic Temple; the expansion of membership after World Wars I and II; the near destruction by fire of the Hornsby Temple in 1971 and the building's demolition following a further fire in 1995 are all described. Fraternal visits, Anzac Day traditions, and the cooperation between masons and other service clubs are detailed and show that throughout their 100-year history in the Hornsby Shire, the masons have done much to support local charities and deserving causes.

This history of Lodge Hornsby is a well-illustrated account of a little-known organisation that plays an important role in the local community.

Soft cover, B5, viii +56 pages, illustrations, notes, appendix, index.
