History of Masonic Lodge 188 in Covington

In 1995 a history of the Masonic Lodge in Covington, LA, was made available. HERE IS A LINK to a PDF file of that document. Efforts to establish the lodge first began in 1867, just shortly after the Civil War. 

The history includes the names of many prominent citizens of the community and tells the story of how the Lodge building was built and paid for.
