The History of Union Lodge No. 48
The earliest record of Freemasonry in Elkton indicates that Elk Town Lodge No. 8 existed from 1787 until 1793 and is believed to have been the first lodge in the area.
Records also indicate that Harmony Lodge No. 29 existed from 1799 to 1801. However, no charters or records of these lodges were ever surrendered to the Grand Lodge; therefore, it's unknown why they ceased to exist.
In 1811, a group of Masonic Brothers, i.e., Bros. James Sewell, William Baxter, and George Lightner, petitioned the Grand Lodge to again organize a Masonic Lodge in the Elkton area. The warrant to organize was issued in 1811, and Union Lodge No. 48 was subsequently chartered on May 12, 1812.
In January of 2008, Cecil Lodge No. 125, a Masonic Lodge in Chesapeake City, Maryland, closed it's doors and merged with Union Lodge No. 48 bringing our total membership to 180 brethren.
We celebrated Union Lodge's 200th Anniversary in May of 2012.
