Welcome to St. John's Lodge No. 1, A.Y.M.
St. John's Lodge No.1 is the oldest operating Lodge under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of New York F&AM. Originally warranted in 1757 by the Modern Grand Lodge of England, we recently celebrated the 250th Anniversary of our founding.
Our Lodge maintains a strong and vibrant membership of all ages and walks of life, bound by a common tie of brotherhood and living our lives according to time-honored Masonic principles. We meet on the third Wednesday of each month between September and May of each year in the Ionic Room on the 6th floor of Masonic Hall in Manhattan.
With a strong emphasis on ritual excellence, Masonic education, spirituality and fraternity, St. John's Lodge No. 1 observes the traditional tenets of old-world Freemasonry in the context of 21st Century life.
