Hollywood, California

Please note that this is not our home lodge but is a lodge that one of our brethen has visited. Our lodge is located in the San Francisco Bay Area.

  While visiting Hollywood, we were at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre when my father noticed the building on the other side of the street. While I didn't have the time to further investigate or visit, it was interesting to see that even in the ol'Tinseltown, some virtues may have existed some time ago..

  The building was once the home of Hollywood Lodge No. 355. The lodge abandoned and sold the building, and moved to the San Fernando Valley - much to the regret of many. A lot of Hollywood stars were members of that lodge in the 1920’s and 1930’s, and there is a story that there was a tunnel connecting the building with the theater so that they could attend lodge and avoid the crush of fans outside in the street.
