Greetings from all the Masons in the Bluegrass State

Most Worshipful Richard F. “Dick” Short
Grand Master 2023-2024

The over 30,000 Masons of Kentucky welcome you to the Grand Lodge of Kentucky Free and Accepted Masons site.

Although Masonry has been in Kentucky over 200 years, this represents one of the few public appearances in any media other than individual stories about the many philanthropic endeavors of our Lodges and affiliated organizations. It is not that we want to be secretive, but our tradition is to not be flamboyant or advertise our good works. It is our hope that this site will serve to remove some of the shroud of mystery associated with Masonry. Any suggestions you have to make it more valuable will certainly be appreciated.

Are you interested in pursuing membership? The basic criteria for membership is:

• A belief in God
• Believe in the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of man
• Male and at least 18 years old
• Be a resident of Kentucky
• Be recommended by 2 members of the Lodge
• Receive a unanimous ballot for membership

There is one little known aspect of petitioning for membership of which you should be aware. You will not be asked to become a member. Masons in Kentucky do not solicit for membership, we wait for the man to ask for a petition.
