What happened in Masonic History Today?
Today in Masonic History Josiah Williams Begole passes away in 1896.
In this episode, we get to have a great chat with Bro. Bryan Simmons who is the current Junior Warden of Ezekiel Bates Lodge in Attleboro, MA. And the curator of the Attleboro Masonic Museum. Bryan delivers a well-crafted summary of the grand history of this iconic lodge. He walks us through the amazing collection they were able to compile of historic items from around their amazing five story Temple. They have brought these items back to the light of day and giving them a second chance to tell their tale by transforming an old master's office into a first class Masonic Museum. We also get a chance to get the behind the scene scoop on how Masonic Con came to be and some of the plans for this growing event moving forward.
