The Masonic Lodge Hall is located in the Industrial Area of Old Cowtown Museum. It represents the Freemasons, a civic and social group consisting of men of all occupations from the surrounding area. They came together to talk about local news and ideas for improving the town and region. The first Wichita lodge was chartered in the 1870s. Many of the leading men in the early days of were masons. They met in a building called a Masonic Lodge Hall.

The sign on the building symbolizes the Masons. The Square and Compass signify integrity and virtue and were tools of operative masons. The “G” letter sometimes found inside the symbol stands for both God and Geometry. The exhibit inside represents the two major orders of masonry, the Scottish Rite and the York Rite.
