The Lodge has a rich history of charitable  work in Bend and the surrounding communities. The Lodge is a Blue Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons, the oldest fraternity in history.

Located in beautiful Central Oregon, there are many opportunities to enjoy the outdoors and, with, on average, over 320 days of sun a year, there are plenty of days to take advantage of them.

The Lodge is in District 19 of the Grand Lodge of Oregon, and meets at the Bend Masonic Center, located near the intersection of 8th and Greenwood Streets in NE Bend, just west of Pilot Butte.
