Our History

In the aftermath of World War II, amidst the ruins of a divided Berlin, a beacon of camaraderie and brotherhood emerged in the form of the Berlin 46 Outpost, a masonic lodge founded and consecrated by American and Canadian military personnel. Officially established in 1947, this lodge served as a testament to the enduring principles of Freemasonry: humanity, brotherly love, and the pursuit of truth.

The founders of the Berlin 46 Outpost hailed from the West Berlin Allied Forces, comprising American and Canadian military personnel who sought to foster bonds of friendship and solidarity in the aftermath of war. Despite their diverse backgrounds and nationalities, these men found common ground in the timeless principles of Freemasonry.

Organized Under the American Canadian Grand Lodge (ACGL)

The structure and operations of our Freemasonry organization are overseen and facilitated by the American Canadian Grand Lodge (ACGL). As a governing body, the ACGL ensures the adherence to established principles, rituals, and traditions while fostering unity and collaboration among our diverse membership.
