Welcome to Hannibal Lodge #1
Hannibal Lodge No.1 was founded on June 15th, 1852, in the city of San Francisco under the leadership of Master Phillip A. Buchanan. It is the oldest lodge in the jurisdiction and is one of the three lodges that established our Grand Lodge in 1855.
Hannibal Lodge worked under a charter granted them by The Most Worshipful National Grand Lodge.
The Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons State of California Incorporated is a Mutual Benefit non-profit organization that embodies a beautiful system of morality, veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols. The fraternity, founded upon Christian principles established in the Holy Bible, strives to teach a man the duty he owes to GOD, his neighbor, and to himself; but interferes neither with religion nor politics as it prescribes the practice of virtues in the conduct of its business.
The foundation is Character. Its purpose is Service. Its measure is Giving. Its foundation is perpetuated by making “Good Men Better.” Its purpose is service, which is rendered to the people of California to improve their social, cultural, and economic conditions. Its measure is giving an act of unselfish sacrifice for the benefit of others.
