WELCOME BROTHERS!   Welcome to the home page of Merritt Island Lodge No. 353, Free and Accepted Masons (F&AM) of Florida. The Lodge temple is located on South Tropical Trail, just south east of the Hubert Humphrey Bridge (Rt 520) on beautiful Merritt Island Florida, in the center of  The Thundering 17th Masonic District

Merritt Island is home to the John F. Kennedy Space Center, the site where man's greatest achievement - travel to and return from the moon - began. The Space Shuttles are gone but the legacy continues with an ever-expanding array of new rocket programs. Rocket launches can be witnessed on occasion from the front porch of the lodge or while relaxing in our Garden of Reflection while enjoying the nice island breeze.  Across the Banana River, only a short drive from the lodge, is Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The station is the site where Alan Shephard and John Glenn blasted off into history. Cocoa Beach is nearby and boasts the nearest and cleanest beaches to the Central Florida Treasure Coast area

Merritt Island Lodge, chartered in 1966, has a rich tradition of giving and fellowship. We support numerous organizations such as the  Children’s Hunger Project, St Francis Reflections Lifestage Care, Azan Shrine Center, the Shrine clubs, and the American Veterans. We are one of the most active and diverse lodges in the District with Brothers as young as 18 and as old as - well, 101 years young. We all have something to offer each other and to the Masonic fraternity. We embrace our neighborhood communities with local charity support, and the Child ID program. It is our honor and privilege to be a part of building strong community allegiance.

Whether you are a brother of the lodge, a brother of another lodge, a fellow traveler or interested in what Freemasonry may offer, we invite you visit with us. Come to any stated meeting or business night (see schedules below) and enjoy Merritt Island's hospitality and the company of the brethren.  I extend our hospitality to all!

 "The secret of Masonry, like the secret of life, can be known only by those who seek it, serve it, live it. It cannot be uttered; it can only be felt and acted. It is, in fact, an open secret, and each man knows it according to his quest and capacity. Like all things worth knowing, no one can know it for another and no man can know it alone."     - Dr. Joseph Fort Newton
