Historic Masonic Bible of Saint John's Lodge
Lastly, but certainly not least, we invite you to view the display of the historic Masonic Bible of our Saint John's Lodge No. One, on which the father of our country, Brother George Washington, took his oath of office as President of the United States of America on April 30, 1789. This precious Masonic and National Treasure is frequently on display at Federal Hall located on Wall Street, New York City. This King James version Masonic Bible has been subsequently used at the Inaugurations of Presidents Warren G. Harding in 1921, Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1953, Jimmy Carter in 1977, and George H.W. Bush in 1989. The Masonic Bible was brought to Washington, DC to be used at the Inauguration of President George W. Bush, but due to inclement weather another Bible was substituted.
