Phoenixmasonry Masonic Museum and Library
August 11, 1999, saw the birth of a new Masonic museum and without walls of brick and mortar but with a collection that nonetheless delights and fascinates visitors.
The Phoenixmasonry Masonic Museum and Library, http://www.phoenixmasonry.org, is the world’s first and largest online, virtual museum devoted to Freemasonry and fraternalism.
It was created by its President and Curator, Worshipful Brother David Lettelier along with several Master Masons who met each other on the popular Internet auction site eBay while collecting fraternal objects. The museum never closes and offers easy online access to web-surfers in the safety and comfort of their homes and businesses.
The founders shared an interest in preserving the rich cultural heritage of artifacts, books, and collectibles that were produced to commemorate many special Masonic and fraternal events. Lodge dedications, cornerstone layings, anniversaries, installations, and conventions were all marked and remembered by presentation pieces made in glass, china, porcelain, wood, and metals. They were given away or sold to friends, family, and brethren who were in attendance. These artifacts are truly symbolic of the perfection our forefathers strived to achieve in their daily lives.
