Burbank Masonic Lodge has been in existence for over 100 years. In 1909 Burbank Lodge No. 406 Free and Accepted Masons received a dispensation from California Grand Lodge to form a Lodge in Burbank on June 28th 1909. Prior to its current location on Glenoaks Blvd., the Lodge met in rooms above the original Story Hardware (now Story Tavern), before purchasing its own property on Olive Ave., across from City Hall.
Freemasonry is the world’s first and largest fraternal organization, and is based on the belief that each man has a responsibility to help make the world a better place. Through our culture of philanthropy, we make a profound difference for our brothers, our families, our communities, and our future. The mission of the Masons of California, to foster personal growth and improve the lives of others, is carried out through Masonic principles and tradition.
