Welcome to the website of Union Lodge #7, a lodge of Freemasons in Denver, Colorado, chartered in 1863.

We thank you for your interest in our lodge and our fraternity-the oldest in the world dating back to the first recorded Grand Lodge in London in 1717.

Our Colorado Grand Lodge website notes that “the purpose of Freemasonry is to help men better themselves through the application of our teachings which are based on moral and ethical principles and taught through the use of symbolism, allegory, and ritual.”  What that means to us as members is that we have the privilege of associating with men of all races, creeds, and religious faiths that share a common bond of morality, moral codes, tolerance, and a desire to improve themselves and their families.

Look around this site to learn more about what we are doing and have planned.  As noted elsewhere, feel free to join us for dinner on any 2nd or 4th Saturday at 6:30 PM at the Welton Masonic Center, 1614 Welton Street, Downtown Denver, Colorado.

Our members represent a wide variety of professions, ages, and interests.  Their common lifelong bond is their commitment to the principles and morality that are at the foundation of the moral character that makes a good man.

If you, or your family, have questions about Freemasons or our lodge specifically please contact us through this website or e-mail our lodge secretary at secretary@union7.org.

Our History

It was in November, 1863, that Union Lodge #7 was born. Denver was a small frontier town with perhaps two to three thousand people. Only five years old but even then with a history. The Russell party made the first discovery of gold in this country in the fall of 1857 in the sands of the upper reaches of Cherry Creek. Russell and his party then moved down Cherry Creek prospecting as they went until they reached the Platte River. Continue reading “Our History”

We are proud to have been a part of Denver, Colorado’s, Masonic history for over one hundred and fifty years. We continue to meet at our downtown Masonic Temple building at 1614 Welton Street bi-monthly on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month with the exception of June, July and August.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to restrictions surrounding Covid-19, we are not currently holding in-person meetings.
