Our History

Masonry came to Colorado with the pioneers and it may be said that the history of the early days of Colorado is a history of the achievements of the Masons of that time.

The Master's Message

June 2022

The official days of summer are so very near. The kids are out of school and the days, as well as the nights, are heating up despite late-season snow that breaks everyone’s tree branches. We had a lot of fun at the annual scholarship night and handed out 13 scholarships and redecorated the fifth floor by officially hanging the portrait of Henry Bromwell that was donated to and restored by the temple association last year. The next time you’re at the Welton building, pop up to the fifth floor and check out the new artwork.
