The Grand Lodge received a petition to warrant a Masonic Lodge in Chambersburg on March 4, 1799.  More than a year later Lodge #79 was formed with General James Chambers, son of the founder, as Warrant Master.  After 54 meetings in five years, Lodge #79 faded into oblivion.  The Grand Lodge granted a warrant to constitute George Washington Lodge in 1815. George Washington Lodge has been meeting in the same Lodge since 1860, and in 1864, Chambersburg was burned by Confederate soldiers, yet the Masonic Lodge was spared. Interested in more?
