The Ancient Accepted
Scottish Rite (or Scottish Rite, for short) is perhaps the
most visible and least understood appendant body of
Freemasonry. It isn't particularly ancient, and it
didn't come from Scotland. In the years leading up to
1920 the Scottish Rite became the fastest growing fraternity
in the United States.
This site is designed
to keep our members informed of upcoming local Masonic
fraternity events. It also provides
information on how to become a Scottish Rite Mason.
