Nebraska Lodge meets monthly on the first Monday at 7:30 at the West Omaha Masonic Center located at 2424 South 135th Avenue. It was chartered in 1855, and has approximately 150 members. There are more than 13,000 members in about 125 communities in the state. Freemasonry has nearly two million members in the U.S.
Masonic lodges across Nebraska support local youth and community projects and humanitarian efforts including a statewide blood drive, child identification program and scholarships. Freemasonry, a benevolent, educational and charitable organization, provides $2 million a day in charity through its lodges and appendant bodies. The Grand Lodge helps to maintain two homes: The Masonic Home at Plattsmouth for Masons and their female relatives, and the Masonic-Eastern Star Home for Children in Fremont.
Masonry is the oldest and largest fraternal organization in the world and is based on the lessons of living a life of brotherhood and high moral standards as portrayed symbolically in the work of stone masons who built the cathedrals, abbeys and castles of Europe.
