Abbeville Lodge was chartered February 9, 1869
when the town of Abbeville was about 25 years old.

The first temple if it could be called such, or
meeting place is believed to have been in a building
near the railroad depot and the Old Masonic Cemetery.
This building was also used as a Methodist Church, and
was possibly the first Methodist church in Abbeville.

Numbered among the membership, starting in 1869 have
been leading members of the community including, doctors,
lawyers, judges, educators, military men, businessmen, farmers,
political leaders, fishermen, merchants, builders and laborers.
Each of these men were men of good will searching for light.

Most of the early membership, because they spoke
English were called "Americans" (outsiders), who had
come to Abbeville. Very few of the French speaking
natives were interested in the Masonic Lodge. Among the
exceptions were Brother Lastie Broussard, the Clerk of
Court and Brother Joseph Trahan, who was a local farmer.
Brother J. T. Labit was our lodge's first Senior Warden and
after that, he served as Master of Abbeville Lodge 19 times.

"It is said that Time is the greatest tester of all
things. If an institution can stand the test of time
and maintain their ideals and principles it must be
worthwhile. Masonry first came to Abbeville in 1869.
Even though membership has changed through several
generations, the ideals & principles have stood unchanged.

The Lodge has stood the acid test of time and has been a
great influence for good in the growth of our community.

The foundation of Masonry is deeply laid upon the Great
Book of Life and will remain true to the end when the
Great Master of all will take charge of the craft and
order the working tools laid down and the craft dismissed."

The present Masonic Lodge was authorized on March 18, 1920.
The cornerstone was laid September 4, 1920 with the Most
Worshipful Grand Master Ira Weigram officiating that meeting.

We are continually trying to improve our Masonic skills and
to that end we meet on the "off" Thursdays for practice.
