Oshkosh Lodge Honors Brothers on St. John the Baptist Day 

The Brethren of Oshkosh Masonic Lodge No. 27, in conjunction with St. John the Baptist Day (June 24), honored Masons buried in Lake View Memorial Park by placing Masonic Flags at their gravestones. Two hundred fifty flags were placed. The intention is that this becomes an annual practice and will spread to other cemeteries throughout Oshkosh. 

The Oshkosh Masonic Lodge will be celebrating our 175th Anniversary in 2024. To put in perspective, that’s four years before Oshkosh officially became a city and one year after Wisconsin became the 30th state. We were intricately involved in the formation and growth of the City of Oshkosh and continue to be relevant today. We recognize the need to honor the past and, at the same time, look to positively impact the future. 

If you know of any Freemasons buried in Oshkosh cemeteries, please reach out to Jordan Wilcox at [email protected], so the Oshkosh Freemasons can honor them in the future years as well.
