The Headwaters District

of the

Grand Lodge of the Ancient Free & Accepted Masons of Montana


Instituted on January 26th, 1866, with the founding of Virginia City Lodge #1, Freemasonry has been a vital part of the area ever since. We are proud to represent the world's oldest and largest (estimated around 3 million members worldwide) fraternity. Freemasonry is founded on a core belief that, through a common dedication to a Supreme Being and several essential principles, good men may be made better.

This site will provide you with a fuller understanding of Freemasonry and our work in our Ancient Craft, and information on how to contact and join us.
