Get an inside look into one of the most politically consequential and culturally influential societies in the history of the United States, thanks to a new exhibit on display at the University of Georgia Special Collections Libraries.
Freemasonry in Georgia: Ideals, Imagery, and Impact, presented by the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library, combs through photos, clothing and regalia, books, newspapers and other artifacts to explain the influence of the organization and its members on communities throughout Georgia for the past 200 years. As part of the experience, visitors are invited to participate in an immersive gallery game for all ages that mimics the ways in which freemasonry lore has been explored in movies like National Treasure.
The Special Collections Building is open to visitors for free from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, with extended evening hours until 7 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Freemasonry in Georgia: Ideals, Imagery, and Impact will remain open to the public through July of 2023. For more information or to schedule a tour, visit libs.uga.edu/scl.
