Freemasonry (also called “Masonry”) is the world’s first and largest fraternity, based on the belief that each man can make a difference in the world. Freemasonry enhances and strengthens the character of the individual man by providing opportunities for fellowship, charity, and education. Lawrenceburg Lodge #4 is located at 21 Decker Ave in Greendale and was chartered in 1818. Its members strive to make this Lodge one of the building blocks of Southeast Indiana by donating time and money to various local and national charities. Our meetings are on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30pm. Find out more about Freemasonry in Indiana by visiting
