Grand Lodge, Free & Accepted Masons of Ohio
On August 5, 1884, the cornerstone of the pedestal of the Statue of “Liberty Enlightening the World” was laid by William A. Brodie, Grand Master of Masons in the State of New York. Of all the cornerstones laid with ceremony by Masons the world over, this remains one of the most famous, impressive, and inspirational.
In our new article, we journey back to the 19th century to relive this moment. We review the story that led our brethren to the ceremony of that historic day, held alongside international dignitaries, military officers, and distinguished citizens. We hope you enjoy and share with your brethren:
