Minerva Lodge No. 250 -Kingston upon Hull -Founded 1782
The Minerva Lodge was founded in 1782 making it the oldest surviving Masonic Lodge in the City of Kingston upon Hull and one of the oldest in the Province of Yorkshire North & East Ridings. Our City lies on the confluence of the River Hull and the enormous Humber estuary. We are a major trading port in the United Kingdom with a seafaring history. This fact is reflected in our early Lodge records where we can see many of our brethren were Master Mariners not just from England, but also from distant parts including America, Tasmania, Russia, Sweden, Germany, Holland, Finland, France, and Italy to name a few.
