WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITEOn March 7, 1871, seven members of Hiram Lodge #4, gather at the home of Brother Mason S. Lowry at 40 Gay Street in Old Georgetown and organized this association. The object of this association was to request Hiram Lodge #4 to petition the Grand Lodge of the District of Columbia to grant them a dispensation to form a new lodge. The dispensation was granted and the name Widow's Son was selected for this lodge.
