"Making Good Men, Better"

Interested in Becoming a Freemason?


One of our Past Masters, Frank Todd, wrote a paper about the history of Richardson Lodge. Frank wrote this paper to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Richardson Lodge 1214. In 2011, Frank’s paper was selected for publication in the Texas Lodge of Research. Thank you, Frank for all your long hours and hard work on this paper of our history.



The first step to becoming a Freemason, especially if you don't know any, is to get to know some of us. Becoming a Freemason is a very personal decision and is not a right fit for everyone. We want to get to know you to make sure Masonry is right for you, and you should get to know us to understand if we are the right lodge for you.


No one is asked to become a Freemason. This is not a society that has been privately selected by invitation only. Our Fraternity is built on free minded men who seek out and ask to be made a Mason. Once you have gotten to know some of the Brethren, ask for a petition. They will let you know if they think it is right for you and the right time to join.


Once you fill out your petition, you will need 5 Freemasons to vouch for you by signing it. This is one of the reasons it is so important to get to know some of the members. After you have your petition submitted an investigation committee will be assigned to your request and will meet with you to explore your interest.
