Welcome brethren, friends, and guests of Naval Lodge No. 4. Thank you for visiting our new website and thank you for your interest in Naval Lodge.

Freemasonry is the oldest surviving fraternal order in the world, and is a place for men of conscience to come together to become better men, husbands, fathers, friends, brothers, colleagues, and citizens. Naval Lodge is the oldest continually operating lodge in the District of Columbia, and our 210 year history is intricately intertwined with the growth of Masonry, the growth of Washington, and the growth of our nation.

Our themes for 2015 are leadership and community. As a leading lodge in the District of Columbia, we are examining many aspects of leadership this year; from civic leadership to thought leadership. Additionally, we are working to become more visible in the Capitol Hill community as well as around the rest of the city. We are holding many open events this year in which families, friends, and spouses/significant others/partners are invited to attend.

All men of good character and moral standing are encouraged to visit and learn more about our time-honored Fraternity. I offer our most cordial invitation to join us for one of our open stated communications whenever you can make it.

Sincerely and Fraternally,
Daniel J. Reeves, Worshipful Master
