Milford lodge sees mew Masonic museum as tool to educate, recruit younger members
But the Masons is also an aging organization, Dunham said, and efforts are afoot to bring in younger people to keep the fraternity from disappearing from communities. That's why Dunham decided to create the museum in Milford.
On Oct. 19 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Masonic Temples throughout the state and in Massachusetts will host open houses to welcome in the public.
It's his goal to have the museum in Milford completed by then.
"We're going to have cases full of memorabilia and stuff hanging on every wall," he said. "I plan to change the exhibits once a year or so to keep it fresh, but this room will be full."
