Masonic Lodges of Currituck County
Courtesy of : The Grand Lodge A. F. &  A. M. of North Carolina 

In a time when travel was by horseback and sailing ship, Masonry spread with amazing speed. By 1731, when Benjamin Franklin joined the fraternity, there were already several lodges in colonies, and Masonry spread rapidly as America expanded west.  In addition to Franklin, many of the Founding Fathers--men such as George Washington, Paul Revere, Joseph Warren and John Hancock--were Masons.  Masons and Masonry played an important part in the Revolutionary war and an even more important part in the Constitutional Convention and the debates surrounding the ratification of the Bill of Rights.  Many of those were held in Masonic lodges.
