1913 Western Star
Lodge No. 21 100th Annv. Plate
The beautiful light blue plate decorated with
all the working tools and symbols of Freemasonry was made to commemorate the 100th
Anniversary (1813-1913) of Western Star Lodge No. 21 F.&A.M. of Youngstown, Ohio.
It was made by Thomas Maddock's Sons of Trenton, New Jersey and measures 9 1/2
inches in diameter.
Western Star Lodge No. 21 was granted a dispensation to establish a Lodge of
Ancient York Masons on January 17, 1813. Their charter was granted on January
4, 1816. The lodge met at the Fitch house and other homes, as size required,
on the Thursday preceding every full moon until November 5, 1852 when the
first meeting was held in Youngstown.
In 1872 the lodge leased a third story of a brick building opposite the Tod
House. In 1902 Western Star joined with other Masonic bodies in planning a new
Masonic Temple which was built on Wick Avenue in Youngstown.
In 1999 construction of the new temple in Boardman began and the lodge opened
on July 14, 2000.
