Petition to National Lodge

When you join National Lodge, you join a band of brothers from local communities of Barberton, Ohio. Knock on our Lodge door and you will be welcomed by men who, although may have never met, you can be sure they share your values. What’s more, you will begin the Craft of becoming the best version of yourself, and open endless doors of self-enrichment and charity.


All Freemasons are held to the same standard and must be of good character and reputation to become and remain a member. Additionally, to join Ohio Freemasonry, you must first meet the following criteria:

  • Be a male at least 19 years old
  • Be an Ohio resident for at least six months
  • Be able to read and write English
  • Be prepared to profess a belief in Deity
  • Be of good reputation as a man of honor and integrity
  • Be recommended by two members of the lodge you wish to join
  • Be prepared to obtain a background check if requested

To start your Masonic journey, complete the form below and email it to: You’ll receive a communication from our Lodge Investigation Chairman, and he will provide details on how to become a Freemason with National Lodge. If you know a Mason, we encourage you to reach out and talk with him about his experience as a Mason to see if it’s a right fit for you. You can also include their names with your email, which will speed the process.
