On 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.
On Saturday, March 21st, 2020, Widow’s Son No. 7 will be hosting our annual Masquerade Black Tie Affair. This year, we are focusing on Mental Health Awareness in the African-American community. Too many of our peers, colleagues, and family members are struggling with some very real and difficult challenges. So many are embarrassed to ask for help…don’t know what help looks like, and as love ones…we are simply are missing the signs because we don’t know what the signs are.
