About Our Lodge

Our Lodge was chartered on April 22, 1953 and it was named Village for the village of Miami Shores in Dade County, Florida where it is located. We are very active in the Appendant Bodies of Masonry in Miami and with other Lodges in our District and beyond.

The Lodge is on the main road of a beautiful residential area, close to the Barry University, FIU Biscayne Bay Campus, and Johnson & Wales, as well as to Miami Beach and the Miami Design District.
