The History of Mount Olivet

  • On January 22, 1863 the records state that fourteen gentleman, all Master Masons, held a meeting at the home of Bro. Brown to form a new Lodge in Cambridge. Bro. Russell read the petition to the Grand Lodge for dispensation to form the Lodge.

    In December 1903 the Masonic bodies in Cambridge considered the erection of their own Temple, but it was not until June 30, 1910 that the cornerstone of this present Temple was laid by the Grand Master, Most Wor. Dana J. Flanders.

    On February 19, 1904 Mount Olivet Lodge met in Odd Fellows Hall, North Cambridge for the first time, and continued to meet there until the present Temple was completed about seven years later. Mount Olivet's first meeting in this Temple was on September 1, 1911 and a first Degree was worked.

    We are 152 years young and in that time we have had:

    Eleven District Deputy Grand Masters
    One Jr. Grand Warden
    Two Grand Stewards
    One Grand Pursuivant
    Eight District Deputy Grand Marshals
    Five District Deputy Grand Secretaries
    Seven Joseph Warren Medal holders.

    We meet in the Cambridge Masonic Hall on the first Friday of each month and all are welcome to attend.
