We meet the second Tuesday of every month at 7:30 pm.
Welcome to the home page of Columbia Lodge #44, the second oldest operating Masonic Lodge in Ohio. Columbia Lodge is located in charming Miamitown, just west of Cincinnati. Our Lodge operates under the guiding Masonic principle of "Making good men better".
The Masons are the world’s largest and oldest men’s fraternity. Our traditions are more that three centuries in the making and are founded upon the virtues of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth. These are the traditions that our founding fathers held dear and that good men still value today.
Masons come from all walks of life. Doctors, lawyers, businessmen, plumbers, farmers, and factory workers meet as equals to improve themselves and their communities.
Today there are over 130,000 Masons in Ohio who enjoy membership in 540 different local Lodges.
These men share a tradition of excellence which emphasizes personal integrity, commitment to family, and service to the community.
By becoming a member, you will walk in the footsteps of great men, perhaps like your father, grandfather, mentor, or George Washington, our nation’s father.
