Traveling Trowel – 1905 ~ 1923

In 1905 a “Traveling Trowel” began its long journey spreading fellowship and Brotherly Love along the way.

Starting in New York from Justice Lodge No. 753 and returning back home 22 years later.

The new Grand Lodge of California F. & A.M. magazine has a wonderful article sharing this story.  This story has been shared by other Masonic organizations over the years, but the GL of C. article has some pretty enjoyable pictures added.

In the MWB R.M.R. Memorial Library there is a small pamphlet in the special collection that shares the visit of the Traveling Trowel to Oregon when it visited Willamette Lodge No. 2 1908.

The minutes for Willamette No. 2 have not been searched for this important visit.  It is on a high priority to do so.
