We would like to welcome you to the home page of Alpha Lodge, Ancient Free and Accepted Masons, in Framingham, Massachusetts. The lodge is located at 404 Concord Street.

We meet every 4th Monday, September through June

As a lodge of Freemasons, we are part of the oldest and largest fraternal organization in the world, an organization that is dedicated to the basic tenets of friendship, morality, and brotherly love. Alpha Lodge was formally constituted on November 13, 1876, and has been quietly serving the Framingham community since its inception. Part of our mission, and every Masonic lodge's mission, is to "make good men better" to serve our families, fraternity, faith, communities, and country. Alpha Lodge is a member of the 15th North Masonic District within the jurisdiction of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of Massachusetts.
