Braden Lodge has a few fundraisers planned for this year that we believe will be quite fun and worthwhile.


  • Pizza & Trivia - Starting in March we plan to hold a monthly, 6 round Pub Quiz on the second Friday of the month at 7pm. The cost is $10/person, but includes all of the pizza and popcorn you can eat, and we have some pretty good pizza!
  • In October A Bump in the Night will bring you a new kind of puzzle, a murder mystery! What's more, it will take place in the James J. Hill House in St. Paul as a historical event on Saturday, October 6th. Get your tickets now!

Making Good Men Better

Welcome to

Braden Lodge No. 168

Ancient Free and Accepted Masons

What do Masons do?  That is the question whose answer we hope you have come here seeking.  Like the trade guilds of the medieval days, Freemasonry is a gathering of men who work towards creating something. But while other guilds work towards refining wood, metal, or stone, we refine ourselves into better men. When you go through the initiations, you are not given the keys to a building, you are given the blueprints to build your own. We each must build our lives, one brick at a time and Freemasonry allows you to do it within the context of a group of like-minded men with the benefit of ancient knowledge passed down through the ages. We have discussions and educational pieces. We have ceremonies to remind us of our ideals and never forget to seek the guidance of diety. But perhaps more than anything, we form a brotherhood to support, encourage, and learn from one another.
