Lodge Replica

The Grand Lodge of VT is now the proud owner of a scale replica of a Vermont Masonic Lodge, which was crafted by Barbara Campbell, wife of Brother Jack Campbell, PGM. The work is done to scale with attention to every detail. If you look carefully, there is a real bible on the altar, picture of George Washington and lodge charter on the wall. It took Barbra, several months to craft the lodge, which will now be used in Lodge rededications and other ceremonies of the Grand Lodge of Vermont. The cabinet and carrying case was crafted the W. Brother Morris (Mac) McKenney of Richmond.

Both are works of art and will be on display in the Grand lodge Building in Barre. Please stop in and see the lodge.

The Grand Lodge of Vermont is very indebted to both Barbara and Mac for their efforts in creating this center piece of Vermont Free Masonry.
