Freemasonry In The Old Wild West: A Mini-Documentary

A few days ago, my proposer sent me this great video (see below) detailing the history of Freemasonry in the old (wild) west!

It is super informative and I suggest everyone should take a look at it. (It’s not really that long, it’s only about 8 minutes)

In this video you will learn about:

  • The connection of Freemasonry in the founding of the USA  (particularly in the western USA).
  • The people that came after the first founding fathers, that were both masons and political movers.
  • Masons affecting the exploration, founding and settlement of the Western United States.
  • How Buffalo Bill, Billie the Kid and Louis & Clark are all connected to our Craft
  • How freemasonry was part of everyday life in the west: implementing principles in everyday lives and people.

  1. That is a great video, and I plan on sharing on our site. I would encourage anyone who is interested in this history to visit our page on Texas Masonic History, which talks about early Texas masons, the founding of the Grand Lodge of Texas, as well as the Republic of Texas, and after in great detail. It can be found here, Texas most certainly would not be the same, or quite possibly even founded away from Mexican rule, without Freemasons.

  2. I hear we are devil worshiper i haven’t seen it. Yet I’m 32 degree Scotish rite how to convince them we are not

    • I’m a total outsider, but I gather that at the 33rd level you acknowledge that God is the divine architect but you don’t buy into a religious belief system (eg Christianity). That would seem like devil worship to some. Do Masons claim any particular faith?

    • No we do not have an “official” religion. Every freemason is free to practice any religion he desires just as long as he believes in a “supreme being”.

  3. I doubt that Brigham Young was purposely left out, there are so many that were there at the time, that all could not have been mentioned.

  4. Thanks to you Guy’s somuch, for this great video.. As mentioned before this is a mystical study by Masonic find I am so grateful..
