Ezekiel Bates Lodge A.F. & A.M.

Attleboro, Massachusetts has been our home since 1870. Massachusetts Freemasonry, however, has been woven into the fabric of Attleboro since the late 1700’s. Ezekiel Bates Lodge has a long rich history in the jewelry industry in Attleboro from the early 1900’s to the late 1970’s.

We at Ezekiel Bates Lodge believe in a world where good men want more from life, to better themselves by helping others less fortunate. We believe in Brotherhood regardless of race, creed or religion. We believe in leaving the world better than we found it.

“Carve your name on hearts, not tombstones. A legacy is etched into the minds of others and the stories they share about you.” –Shannon Alder
