Welcome to Niles McKinley Lodge #794

On behalf of the officers and members of Niles McKinley Lodge #794 Free and Accepted Masons of Ohio, we welcome you to our website. Niles McKinley Lodge #794 is part of the fraternal organization of men known as Freemasonry or Masonry. These men are members of the largest and oldest fraternity in the world.

Freemasonry teaches the great lessons of life - the importance of honor and integrity, of being a person on whom others can rely, of being both trusting and trustworthy, of realizing that you have a spiritual nature as well as a physical nature, of importance of self-control, of knowing how to keep confidential what others tell you so they that may "open up" without fear.

Freemasons have a responsibility to make things better in the world. Over $2 million dollars are spent every day by Masons to help others in need.

Freemasonry lets men associate with other men of honor and integrity who believe that things like honesty, compassion, love, trust and knowledge are important.

Freemasonry is kindness in the home, honesty in business, courtesy in society, fairness in work, concern for the unfortunate, resistance toward evil, help for the weak, forgiveness for the penitent, love for one another and God.

If you are searching for meaning, depth, and focus to life; searching for a philosophy and ethic that will help you to live a better life; searching for growth and self-improvement, we would encourage you to learn all you can about Niles McKinley Lodge #794 and Freemasonry. If you would like to be involved in Freemasonry or are interested in becoming a Mason, please contact us so we can discuss the fraternity with you.
