Free and Accepted Masons

The first Masonic meeting in Georgia was held in 1734 at the town of Sunbury in what is now Liberty County, with General James Edward Oglethorpe serving as Worshipful Master. This was just seventeen years after the formation of the Grand Lodge of England, on February 21, 1734. "The Lodge at Savannah in ye Province of Georgia," which is now Solomon's Lodge No. 1, was organized with General Oglethorpe as the first Worshipful Master. The Grand Lodge of Georgia was organized in 1735 by virtue of the authority granted to Roger Lacey, First Provincial Grand Master in Georgia, by Lord Viscount Weymouth, Grand Master of England. The present Grand Lodge, a continuation of the one formed in 1735 under English Regulations dates from December 16, 1786. General Samuel Elbert, Revolutionary War hero, was the last Provincial Grand Master of Georgia.
