Brief History of Lodge St John No.788



Constituted 30th November 1892

Towards the end of the 19th Century, Corstorphine was a quiet village on the outskirts of Edinburgh. The advent of the railway meant that many people were moving into the area, including of course Freemasons.
Kirk Loan from 1910Several brethren from various Lodges in the City of Edinburgh decided that a Lodge would be an asset to the village and they, along with other organisations, planned a community centre (Public Hall) for the village. The Corstorphine Public Hall Company was formed and from the sale of shares, the hall was built and completed in 1892. Freemasons, many of whom were shareholders, were allocated a room suitable for use as a Masonic Temple.
Our Temple is small but full of character and is much the same today as it was in 1892, except of course we now have electricity. The Masters dais incorporates a fine War memorial, which immortalises the brethren of the Lodge who gave their lives for their country during both world wars.
Visiting brethren are assured a warm welcome and a trip back in time when they enter St. John Corstorphine No. 788.
