Masonic Records of the Western Star Lodge, No. 24, F&AM

Minute Books

Several weeks back, a member of the Western Star sent me this e-mail:

For your reference or those who might be interested, attached is a listing of minute books and sign-in registers which are housed in the lodge building on Stubbs.  These books may be viewed by appointment at the lodge and in the presence of a lodge officer.   Photographs may be taken of the pages by smart-phones or similar devices which would not damage the volumes.  These books may not be borrowed or taken from the lodge.  There is nothing “secret” in any of them.  They are merely handwritten or typewritten documentation of meetings.
