Suffolk #60 purchased the Presbyterian Church in 1910, and after considerable remodeling, the first meeting was held in the old church in 1912. The “Masonic Temple” is a light-yellow building with dark and light blue windows, blending in with the outdoor brick garden outside the lodge.
Reserved for use only under very special conditions we to will pass through here to visit the Lodge Room. Note the ornate pillars.
Met within the earliest Rituals of the eighteenth century the flooring is classed among the ornaments of a Lodge in combination with the indented tassel and the star. There is contained deep symbolism that all newly initiated Brothers receive instruction in. This is the view the Master of the Lodge has from his podium the East.
Installed during the original temple remolding in 1912, the Stain glass window and handcrafted sign are lovingly maintained by the Brothers of the lodge over 100 years later.
Without a doubt the most important piece of furniture in any Lodge. Freemasonry though not a religious institution does direct all men to look to deity in whatever form they may believe.
Fellowship and Hospitality are hallmarks of Masonic Tradition. Suffolk Lodge #60 features a multi use configurable collation room. We have monthly dinners, biweekly social evenings. Games, Dances, and Celebrations.
Constructed in 2015 the Brick Garden of Reflection as par pf a fund raising venture to create a peaceful haven for the people of Port Jefferson Village and for Freemasons and families from across Suffolk County to come to, sit quietly and reflect when someone dear to them has passed away. The Garden features specifically designed, sculptured and engraved Masonic Memorial Bricks.
This is where we hold our biweekly meetings. The Lodge Room functions as a multi-function work space designed to host Public as well as Masonic Functions. The room has hosted dances, memorial services, public dedications, and even a yearly visit from Brother Santa Claus
The Heart of the social activities of Suffolk Lodge #60 is The South. A hand crafted social gathering area where the brothers gather to trade stories, collaborate on ideas, participate in esoteric discussions. There is adjustable ambient lighting and sound system to set the tone for any gathering.
