GRAND LODGE OF VIRGINIA RESEARCH LODGES
There are currently six Research Lodges in the Commonwealth of Virginia. They were formed, not to raise new Masons, but for the purpose of bringing more “light” (knowledge) into the lives of men who are already Masons. Many of the papers that are presented by the members can be found on their websites, which are shown below.
