Golden Gate lodge is a supporter of Chagrin Falls Little Theater, Ohio Special Olympics and other worthy organizations and charities.  We award four 2-year scholarships each year to Chagrin Falls and Kenston High School seniors who are committed to their communities and fellow students, as well as their academics.  We also sponsor a semi-annual highway clean up at the intersection of SR 44 & 422. Lodge members are involved in a multitude of additional charitable activities.

The lodge boasts a long and storied history.  Eleven members of the original lodge first received a dispensation to operate on Dec. 3, 1853. Our current three-story building was dedicated on June 4, 1924. Read about our history.

The lodge offers many benefits to its members. Becoming a Mason at the Chagrin Falls lodge builds character, and is extremely rewarding. To learn more about Freemasonry explore this website. For more information about the lodge or to learn how to join, please contact the Secretary.
