A brief history, in 1932, the Dothan Lodge was built at the intersection of North Oates and Troy in Dothan, AL with William L. Lee as the Grand Master of the  Lodge at the time of construction. Since then, Lodge #446 has resided in this building, along with other lodges over time. Within these halls meet the Free Masons of Lodge 466. As well as the Scottish Rite , York Rite , and Order of the Eastern Star.

The menu across the top will help guide you as you peruse our site learning more about us.  It provides links to past masters, as well as links to the Grand Lodge of Alabama.

A little about Masonry

Masonry is not a religion

  • Freemasonry is a fraternity – not a church, not a synagogue, not a temple or mosque, not a substitute for faith, and certainly not a religion.
  • The Master of the Lodge is the President of the club – not a Priest or a Rabbi.
  • Freemasonry recognizes and encourages each individual’s right to his own beliefs.

Freemasonry is founded on the following core values:

  • Ethics
    Our lives are based on honor and integrity, and we believe that honesty, compassion, trust, and knowledge are important.
  • Tolerance
    The fraternity values religious, ethnic, cultural, social, and educational differences. We respect the opinions of others and strive to improve and develop as human beings.
  • Personal Growth
    Our continuous pursuit of knowledge, ethics, spirituality, and leadership brings more meaning to our lives.
  • Philanthropy
    We make a difference in our communities through charitable giving, community service, and volunteerism.
  • Family
    We strive to be better spouses, parents, and family members and are committed to protecting the well being of members and their families, especially when they are in need.
  • Freedom
    Masons value the liberties outlined in the U.S. Constitution and continually promote freedom of speech and expression, freedom to worship a Supreme Being in an individual way, and other important liberties. We believe it is our duty to vote in public elections and to exercise all of our liberties within due and proper bounds.

Masonry is not a secret society

Much has been made of the Secrets of Freemasonry over the centuries but many would argue that if Masonry was a secret society, it’s the worst kept secret in the world!

Freemasonry is a fraternal association of men of good and high ideals but it is not a public association. “Private” is a more appropriate description than “secret” and as with many organizations, certain information is reserved for members only.
