Our North Texas Masonic Historical Museum & Library is conducting a volunteer word day this Saturday, September 18th. We will be starting at 8am and plan to continue working all day long (until 3pm). Please, attend and lend a few hours of your time to improving our museum & library.

The M&L will focus on developing new programming, fulfilling our grant obligations (yes we receive outside funding), looking for new programs, cataloging and preserving many of the books donated.

If you have not been, stop by to see the progress to date. We are open to the public 3 days a week, we have a very nice collection of books on Masonry & North Texas History. Our displays in the museum reflect many Masonic artifacts, people, places, and local history.

Help us to make places, events, and people come alive again!
