To make good men better men.


Freemasonry is a fraternal organization that arose from obscure origins in the late 16th to early 17th century. Freemasonry now exists in various forms all over the world, with a membership estimated at around five million, including just under two million in the United States and around 480,000 in England, Scotland and Ireland. The various forms all share moral and metaphysical ideals, which include a constitutional declaration of belief in a Supreme Being.




Freemasons use allegory and symbolism as a starting point to communicate important values and ideals in a fraternal atmosphere of learning, respect and mutual support. Brothers find their way to Freemasonry from all walks of life without regard to social status, racial or national origin, and political or religious affiliation.


Walden Lodge


Walden Lodge is located in Greenville, South Carolina, next to Armstrong Elementary School.  It was established in 1908, and is one of over 400 local masonic lodges under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Ancient Free Masons of South Carolina, which was first established as a Provincial Grand Lodge in 1736.


Interested in Becoming A Mason?


2B1 ASK1. No one will ever pressure you, or even ask you to become a Freemason.  To become a Freemason, you must initiate the process by requesting and filing a petition to join a local lodge.  This is to ensure that anyone who applies for membership does so out of a sincere interest, and entirely of his own free will.
