The “Lodge Symbolic” is a unique item that is housed within the Archives of the Grand Lodge of Oregon A. F. and A. M. It is used for dedications of Lodges and Lodge Buildings.
The history of its creation has not surfaced yet during the inventory of the collections of the new MWB RMR Memorial Library and Museum. It is hoped that some day the history of its creation surfaces.
From memory and the use of pictures that have surfaced since 2017 the Lodge Symbolic has been used 5 times. Within this gold box is housed the Vessels of the Grand Lodge of Oregon A. F. and A. M.
