Masonic Lodges were first established in Hull in 1759. The Minerva Lodge was the fourth of these Lodges. It is the only surviving one of the earlier Lodges. Founded in 1782 we used to meet at the Masons Arms in Chapel Lane. In 1802 we acquired a piece of land on a 96 year leashold from the trustees of the old Chapel in Dagger Lane where we built our own Lodge and where we now meet. We acquired the complete freehold of the land including the old chapel in 1874. The Minerva Lodge has quite a reputation of being a little bit different. This is because of its unique ritual known as the "Humber Rite". Only a few Lodges on the East Coast use this ritual but ours really is quite different. Today we are a very vibrant and friendly Lodge. Over the past decade we have had a degree ceremony at every single meeting with many new younger Gentleman joining us.
Anyone interested in freemasonry are most welcome to join our friendly Lodge. Interested persons are normally invited to attend a informal meeting with two or three of the brethren. This meeting (not to be confused with a job style interview) will explain more about freemasonry and explores your interest and whether you feel happy to proceed with your application.
