Porter Lodge No. 284

About Porter Lodge:

Porter Lodge No. 284 was constituted on January 30, 1854 and was named after Brother James Madison Porter, District Deputy Grand Master of Easton Pennsylvania.

The Lodge was originally constituted in Gross Hall, a part of what was then called the United States Hotel situated on the northeast corner of Front and Race Streets in a part of Catasauqua known as Biery's Port. The Lodge continued to meet in Gross Hall for fourteen years and one month, until February 14, 1868.

The Lodge then moved to the Fuller building at Front and Church streets for a period of twenty-four years from 1868 to 1892, then to a new hall at 513 Front Street above Bridge Street, where it remained for 85 years. Then, in May of 1975 the Lodge purchased a building in North Catasauqua known as the Charotin Social Hall where it held its first its stated meeting of October 1977. We continue to occupy this location at 1103 Sixth Street, North Catasauqua, PA 18032-2211.

We hold our Stated Meetings on the first Friday of each month, and we welcome our travelling Masonic brethren.
