Masons of California
Masonry is the world's first and largest fraternal organization, and is based on the belief that each man has a responsibility to help make the world a better place. Through our culture of philanthropy, we make a profound difference for our brothers, our families, our communities, and our future.
The mission of the Masons of California, to foster personal growth and improve the lives of others, is carried out through Masonic principles and tradition. Our mission is guided by the enduring and relevant principles of our fraternity: brotherly love, relief, and truth.
The California Masonic Memorial Temple, also known as the Nob Hill Masonic Center, is a community resource and place of gathering for Masons from throughout California. To educate both Masons and non-members about Masonic culture, history, and traditions, the Nob Hill Masonic Center is home to the Henry Wilson Coil Library and Museum of Freemasonry, located on the second floor mezzanine.
Maintaining the Nob Hill Masonic Center is one of just many ways that the Masons of California contribute to their community. All profits support the charitable activities of our organization.
