Arcadia Palace Masonic Lodge Welcome,

Arcadia Palace Lodge No. 765 was chartered as Palace Lodge No. 765, on October 3rd, 1883. As a result of Arcadia Lodge No. 1138  consolidating into Palace Lodge No. 765, on October 7th, 2016 the newly named lodge came into existence, as a subordinate lodge of the Grand Lodge of Ancient Free & Accepted Masons of the State of Illinois and it’s Jurisdiction, with the following elected Principal Officers: 


                           Bro. Jethroe Smith, Worshipful Master
                           Bro. Kevin Nelson , Senior Warden
                           Bro. Bob Russin, Junior Warden


One of the main aims of Masonry is to ‘Take Good Men, and Make them BETTER’. 
Arcadia Palace Lodge #765 strives to accomplish this aim by providing the membership with tools for spiritual, intellectual, & leadership development. As a fraternal organization, we enjoy the benefits of mutual support and social interaction. Nevertheless, we are primarily committed to making ourselves relevant in our community by engaging in community service and philanthropic endeavors.

Our Tenets are: Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth

We as Freemasons do not recruit or solicit membership. Men who become Masons do so of their own free will and accord. Therefore, in order to become a Mason, you must ask another Mason for a petition to join a Masonic Lodge.

We invite you to take some time to browse our website, and learn more about us and the things that we are doing. For more information, please feel free to contact us .
