Freemasonry traces its roots to the Middle Ages. It is from associations of stone masons, who built the magnificent cathedrals, castles, and monasteries of Europe that the fraternity started. These groups, eventually, began to accept members who were not actual working masons. At that time they adopted the term “Accepted” Masons, and Freemasonry was born.
The Masonic fraternity contributes over $1 Billion each year to its philanthropic pursuits, over $750 Million of that in the United States alone.
