Masons are dedicated to friendship, morality and brotherly love. Charity lies as the foundation of Masonic teaching.
The Grand Junction Masonic Center is area home of Freemasonry for three area Masonic Lodges (Mesa Lodge #55, Grand Junction Lodge #173, and Palisade Lodge #125), Masonic Youth Groups (Rainbow and DeMolay), and appendant bodies (Order of Eastern Star, Scottish Rite and York Rite).
The opening of the Grand Junction Masonic Center in 1972 gave these organizations a place to meet, socialize, perform charitable works and practice the moral teachings that form the foundation of Freemasonry.
Freemasonry is the oldest Fraternal Order in the world, arising from the stone mason guilds of the middle ages and owing its modern existence to the formation of the Grand Lodge of England in 1717. It came to America in colonial times and was a major factor underlying the ideals forming the foundation for the American Revolution. Masonry came to the Grand Valley in 1882 with a charter from the Grand Lodge of Colorado issued to Mesa Lodge #55, the same year as the City of Grand Junction was chartered, the founders of the City being basically the same as the charter members of the Masonic Lodge.
