    Administrative history

    The Ascot Masonic Lodge, No. 30, was established in Lennoxville in 1867. It was one of the larger freemasons lodges in Quebec, and worked to help build the communities surrounding the Lennoxville area while also working closely with the Grand Lodge of Quebec and other lodges. Members frequently attended meetings and worked on annual projects. The mission of the Ascot Masonic Lodge was to "turn good men into better men." All members were permanent residents of Quebec, and applicants were required to be 21 years of age or older.
