Masonry, or Freemasonry, is a fraternal organization that had its roots in the stonemasons who built the medieval cathedrals in Europe. Dedicated to the ideals of charity, equality, morality and service to God, Masonry in its current form came to America from Great Britain. Prominent members included George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and Mozart.
