WELCOME TO RICHMOND RANDOLPH NO.19 ANCIENT FREE & ACCEPTED MASONS
Chartered on October 29, 1787 by the Grand Lodge of Virginia. The brethren of Richmond Randolph No.19 have been meeting in our lodge room, the oldest active masonic lodge room in America, for almost two and a half centuries. We are also the caretakers and keepers of Historic Masons' Hall, the oldest building in America continuously used for masonic purposes, a Virginia Historic Landmark and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Our brotherhood continues to thrive to this day and our doors are open the community and visiting brethren from both near and far.
Richmond Randolph No.19 A.F.&A.M. is proud of not just its lengthily history but of its present active and energetic membership. We're excited about not just the variety of opportunities we create for our members and their families but also with our continued engagement in the Richmond community.
With the cornerstone laid in 1785, Historic Masons' Hall is the oldest building in the United States erected for Masonic purposes and continuously used for that purpose. Masons’ Hall defines the Social, Cultural and Historical impact of Freemasonry on Richmond, our Commonwealth, and our Nation. It is a Virginia Historic Landmark and on the the National Register of Historic Places.
Freemasonry is the oldest fraternal organization in existence, and is based on the belief that each man has a responsibility to help make the world a better place. Through our culture of fellowship and philanthropy, we make a profound difference for our Brothers, our families, our communities, and our future.
