Discover Kilwinning Crosse

There is so much of interest and of historical importance connected with the history of Kilwinning Crosse Lodge, No. 2-237, A. F. & A. M., that the selection of what to include and what to omit in a brief story of that historic Lodge has been something of a $64.00 question.

Those words were written in 1955 by Most Worshipful James Noah Hillman, Past Grand Master of Masons in Virginia and former president of Emory and Henry College, upon beginning his book on the history of Kilwinning Crosse Lodge No. 2-237.  The history of Kilwinning Crosse is indeed intriguing, unique, and of the utmost importance to the region and to the formation of the Grand Lodge of Virginia.  The resources provided on this site are for the education of the friends and brethren of Kilwinning Crosse and to help preserve the knowledge of a crucial part of our civic and masonic history.
