Thomas B. Hunter Masonic Lodge # 1356 received its Charter from the Grand Lodge of Texas on December 8, 1955. It was aptly named for Irish-born Thomas Bernard Hunter, an immigrant and Texas Mason with close ties to the Scottish Rite Freemasonry. As a matter of coincidence his parents were of Scottish ancestry.
Today Thomas B. Hunter is a hard-working, excellence striving blue lodge of good standing. Its varied slate of members number around 400 and continue the cement of brotherhood so essential in the making of a foundation of wholesome and moral standing……….An example for Grand Prairie and all who meet our members. It is closely associated with the 15th Degree Freemasonry rites so closely loved and performed by its late member and namesake, Thomas B. Hunter.
