Who We Are
Freemasonry is the oldest and largest fraternal organization in the world. Prairie View Lodge is made up of friends & brothers, bound together by upright conduct, mutual understanding, and steadfast belief in the equality of man.
What We Do
We strive to improve the communities in which we live and and improve ourselves morally, socially and intellectually. Our chief concern is to improve the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves.
Our lodge contributes generously to important causes in our community. Prairie View has provided life-saving AED devices to area churches and gives an anual scholarship to one student from each of our four area high schools: Green Lake, Markesan, Ripon & Rosendale.
In much the same way that mortar holds a strong building together, we as Masons are bound together by friendship & brotherly love. Doing good in our community and growing as individuals is made better by being in the company of friends & brothers. Someone’s always got your back.
True friends & brothers hold one another to a higher standard. As Masons, we’re taught to keep our thoughts & actions within due bounds. We accept good men into our fraternity, & we make them even better.
History & Tradition
So how are we different from community service organizations? This is it. Our traditions & rituals have existed in much their current form for over 300 years & likely well before that.
