Buford Lodge donated funds to Hope Ministries Food Pantry on March 4th, 2014. Buford's check helped them pass the $100,000.00 mark.  The enclosed photo is of our Master, Bro. Art T. Craig, and our Secretary, Bro. Charles Beagle, Sr. presenting the check to Sharon Hardin of the Food Pantry.

Fraternal Greetings from the Brethren of Buford Lodge #494 Free and Accepted Masons, located in Midway, Kentucky.  We hope you will find our website informative, educational and an enjoyable experience.

Freemasonry in Kentucky has existed for over two centuries, but the roots of Freemasonry have existed far longer and its origins have been debated over the years with no clear answer.  Simply put, Freemasonry is a Fraternity that believes in the Brotherhood of Men under the Fatherhood of God.

The qualifications to join our Fraternity in the Commonwealth of Kentucky are simple: You must be a man at least age 18 years of age, and you must believe in God.

If you believe that you must wait to be asked to join, then your wait will be eternal, for every man who joins our Fraternity simply has to "ask" for a petition to join us.  We do not solicit for membership, for every man who joins our ranks does so of their own free will and accord. One of our mottos that you may have seen is "2B1ASK1", and that's just what it means to join our Fraternity, you simply need to ask a Brother Mason about joining us.

Buford Lodge #494 F&AM meets on the 1st & 3rd Tuesdays of every month, and our Lodge is located at 100 South Winter Street, Midway, KY 40347.

Please consider signing our guestbook before you leave our site and if you have any questions regarding membership or more information about Freemasonry in general, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!
