Masonic tracing boards are both intriguing and rare. In the 1700s and 1800s, Freemasons used cloth painted with symbols to instruct new Brothers in the meaning of Masonic emblems. They spread these cloths on the floor and a lodge officer would teach candidates about different symbols. This special form of Masonic art candidates connect symbols with the fraternity’s moral and philosophical lessons. Crafted with skill and artistry, the Museum’s antique tracing boards speak to the pride Freemasons took in their lodge rooms.
Museum & Library is a proud steward of the tracing boards in their care, and they pleased to share them with you here.
