Visiting Brothers have more fun!

This page shows 3 ways Freemasons 
get creative with stones 

Malheur Cave in Eastern Oregon.
Not a lodge, but it's used by the Freemasons
in Burns, Oregon for ceremonies and events.
Mackey’s Fourteenth Landmark reads as follows:
“The right of every Masons to visit and sit in every regular Lodge is an unquestionable Landmark of the Order.  This is called the ‘right of visitation.’  This right of visitation has always been recognized as an inherent right, which inures to every Masons as he travels through the world.  And this is because Lodges are just considered as only divisions for convenience of the universal Masonic Family."

A Mason who has the opportunity to visit in other lodges may well recall the words of the Great Light upon the Altar, no less true for him that they were said in olden time; “Let us go again and visit our Brethren in every city” (Acts 15:36).  Brethren of that lodge which has the privilege of acting as host to him who comes to the Tiler’s door a stranger and enters the lodge as a brother may rejoice in the words:  “Let Brotherly Love continue.  Be not forgetful to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” (Hebrews 14:1, 2.)

Brothers, get out and see some Lodges:
There is always something new to see in Freemasonry!
