Welcome To Phoenix Lodge No.8 A.F.& A.M
Chartered by the Grand Lodge of North Carolina A.F. & A.M.
Making Good Men Better since 1788.
Welcome to the web site of Phoenix Lodge No. 8 of the 17th Masonic District, under the authority of The Grand Lodge of Ancient Free & Accepted Masons in North Carolina—the oldest Masonic lodge in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
Established as Union Lodge at an unknown date, it was renamed Phoenix Lodge on 17 November 1788. Always active and influential, our lodge was among a group of nine early Masonic lodges across North Carolina that called for the formation of a Grand Lodge in North Carolina.
Despite wars, fires, and other tribulations, Phoenix Lodge No. 8 has never gone inactive since its founding in 1788. As such, it is one of the oldest continuously operating lodges in the state of North Carolina. Today's members are leaders in the community who uphold Phoenix Lodge No. 8's proud history while honoring our Lodge's progressive traditions.
All good men and Brothers are welcome here, regardless of race, creed, or religion, and we hope you will visit often. If you seek true friendship, you will find it here.
