Thank you for considering Benicia Masonic Hall for your Masonic function.
Formed in early 1850, Benicia Lodge became the first lodge building in the state of California. Located between the San Francisco Bay and the gateway to the San Joaquin Delta, the original Benicia Masonic Hall was sold in 1888. Until it was reclaimed by the Grand Lodge of California, it served as a union hall and as a rooming house for soldiers during World War I.
The Grand Lodge of California repurchased Benicia Masonic Hall on January 1, 1950. The downstairs room was then transformed to serve as a museum and library, and the lodge room was used for the conferral of the Master Mason degree. In 1972, the Hall was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
This historic gem is now available for Masonic functions with reasonable pricing plans depending on your needs. Contact us today to host your next Masonic event at the Benicia Masonic Hall.
