Freemasons CentenaryPrint Page
A plaque commemorates 100 years of Freemasonry in Kiama.
Freemasonry is a fraternal organisation that arose from obscure origins in the late 16th to early 17th century. Freemasonry now exists in various forms all over the world, with a membership estimated at around six million.
The Kiama Masonic Temple was built in 1878 and was originally a Temperance Hall for the Sons and Daughters of Temperance. For many years, it was the largest place for public meetings in town and it was purchased by the masons in 1897.
