Details:The Masons and Odd Fellows trace their roots back to European trade guilds from the 1100s and 1200s and came to America by the 1700s. By the early 1900s, Free Masonry and the Independent Order of Odd Fellows had reached a popularity where it is estimated one in five men belonged to one of the secret societies. Both were formed as benevolent groups to better their communities through the charitable support of orphans, the sick, and the poor. Over the last 300 years, the symbolism and imagery of these secret societies has fascinated and influenced American culture. Their rich history extends to Texas with the first Masonic meeting occurring in 1835, followed by an Odd Fellows lodge in Houston in 1838. Today, there are 914 Masonic lodges in Texas with over 122,000 members, part of six million members worldwide. Thirty-six Odd Fellows lodges in Texas serve 1,600 members, part of over 600,000 members globally.
