Welcome to Star in the East Lodge

WM Gary W. Fulkerson
On behalf of our 2021 Worshipful Master
Gary W. Fulkerson

We would like to welcome you to our website.
Upon visiting our website we hope to introduce you to our lodge, Star in the East #166 and to Freemasonry. Star in the East Masonic Lodge began in 1855 with our first Master Edward F.W Ellis who served as a Colonel in the Civil War and gave his life at the Battle of Shiloh April 6, 1862. His service inspires our Lodge as we remain very active today and our membership continues to do good work in the community.
