Welcome Travelers...

Our mission here at Phoenixmasonry is to further spread the "Light in Masonry" and help archive things worth remembering.  Phoenixmasonry represents a new approach to Museums, Libraries and Masonic Education.  We are only located in cyberspace and as near to you as any on-line computer.  I live in Dodge City, Kansas and our members and contributors live in various other places.  There is nothing else like it on-line and we presently play host to some one million (1,000,000) visitors a month.

Questions are always welcome and your interest and involvement is very much appreciated.  Feel free to visit again as we will be continually updating the site with fresh material and new pieces of history on a regular basis.

Jerry E. Stotler,

Founding Board Member and Secretary Emeritus,
