Meeting Place: 1874 Courthouse Visitor Center
This exhibit is about the Mount Horeb Masonic Lodge of Washington, Arkansas. Mt. Horeb Lodge No. 4 was one the first lodges chartered in the state of Arkansas in 1838, and helped organize the Grand Lodge of the State of Arkansas in the same year. The exhibit showcases various artifacts of the lodge, including the original 1838 charter and original officer jewels that were crafted by Augustus Crouch, the local watchmaker of Washington. In conjunction with the exhibit, a Washington “National Treasure” tour will be available for visitors interested in learning more about Freemasonry in Washington. The tour will be part of our regular full tour offered by the park. Children 12 and under participating in the tour will receive a prize if they retrieve all the hidden clues. Contact the park for further details.
