Calgary Lodges

Early in Calgary's history, Masonic lodges met at various locations including at a general store, a pharmacy, in several buildings along downtown's Stephen Avenue, and in nearby neighbourhoods like Inglewood. In 1908, some of the city's lodges decided to find one central location to hold their meetings, and for a number of years their members gathered at the Alexander Corner, a building owned by Senator Sir James Lougheed. By 1928, as Alexander Corner was being readied for demolition in order to expand the downtown Hudson's Bay store, eight local lodges came together to build the Calgary Masonic Temple — now called Freemasons Hall — at 330 12th Avenue SW.

 

Others lodges in Calgary that catered to members outside of the city's core have met and still meet at locations such as the Meadowlark and Triwood community centres, as well as at their own Masonic halls in neighbourhoods like Bankview, Bowness, and Kensington.

 

Today, there are four lodge halls in the city in use by 18 lodges and several related Masonic groups. The following is a list of the lodges that meet in Calgary, including the name of their hall, the day of the month on which they hold their regular meeting, and a link to their website if available.
