Established in 1975 by the Scottish Rite Freemasons of the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction, the Scottish Rite Masonic Museum & Library tells the story of Freemasonry and fraternalism in the context of American history.

Unique in the nation, the Museum aims to be the “historical society” of American Freemasonry by collecting, preserving, interpreting and celebrating the history of fraternalism.

We pay special attention to the history of the Scottish Rite and strive to serve the Masonic community.

From the middle of the 1800s and through the early 1900s, many well-dressed Freemasons wore fobs that bore the mark that they had selected as part of receiving the Mark Degree.

Others sported fobs engraved with not only their mark, but also the names of the different Masonic bodies they belonged to, along with the dates they had joined.

The Royal Arch Mason here (at left), wears a keystone-shaped mark as a fob attached to his watch chain, along with a rich red velvet collar and apron, embroidered in gold….

Ancient & Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry

By: Fred Evrard 

Freemasonry is an initiatic, humanist and progressive fraternity, whose goal is the intellectual, moral and spiritual development of its members, having a positive impact on the community, the search for truth, the study of arts and sciences, and the exercise of beneficence.
Based on a long esoteric tradition and the study of symbolism, its core beliefs are individual and collective work, freedom of thought and human solidarity. Liberty, Equality, Fraternity is one of its mottos.
The Ancient & Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry was born in France and fully developed in Charleston, South Carolina to eventually become the most practiced masonic rite in the world and one with the deepest esoteric teaching.
In this book, Fred Evrard puts in the hand of the reader a synthesis of thousands of pages from 18th and 19th centuries authors that not many of us has the time to study nowadays.
From strict history and legends to the pure Scottish Rite esoteric tradition, this work will enlighten many aspects of the higher degrees of Freemasonry for both, the masons and the profanes.
