The Calvert City Masonic Lodge was chartered on October 24, 1873. The first grand lodge of Kentucky was chartered on November 17, 1788. The Masons’ jurisdiction of Kentucky is composed of 30 districts and 10 regions. Calvert City is in District 2, Region 1, and is currently led by Nathan Freeman. Tracing the origin back to King Solomon, the Masons are the oldest fraternal organization in history. Currently Calvert City has over 100 members.
The celebration included a meal and fellowship with citizens and Masonic members from across the Commonwealth. With the help of Senator Danny Carroll and Ronnie Payne, a resolution was made on the Senate floor honoring the charter’s 150 years.
