My travels this week took me to Tampa Florida and the surrounding area. I wish that I would have had a chance to visit with some of my brothers in the Tampa area but unfortunately did not have the time. Shown above is a picture of Lodge # 25 in Tampa Florida.The building was completed in 1928, and was designed by a group of architects who were themselves members of the Freemasonic Fraternity. They donated their design to the Lodge. It is reported that they used architectural elements from three different Italian cathedral buildings in designing this edifice.Hillsborough Lodge currently has the largest membership of any Lodge in the State of Florida, with over 1200 subscribing members. This building is the fourth to house Hillsborough Lodge No. 25, F&AM, since it was founded in 1850. Members of Lodge # 24 wear Masonic Rings similar to those found at Fox Jewelry.
