History

In 1923 a group of men banned together and organized Jackson Consistory No. 117 a branch of Freemasonry that operates under the M. W. Stringer Grand Lodge, Jurisdiction of Mississippi and the United Supreme Council of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry of the United States of America, Southern Jurisdiction, Prince Hall Affiliated.

The first chartered officers of Jackson Consistory No. 117 were:  L. M. Thomas, L. H. Brown, Eli Crawford, L. S. Rogers, H. M. Mason, B. V. Dennis, M. L. Rogers and E. J. Griffin.

Through the years, Jackson Consistory has carried out the traditions of freemasons by giving assistance to distressed brothers and their families and to the community.  During the holiday seasons of Thanksgiving and Christmas, the Consistory aids the local homeless shelters in providing meals to the needy.  The Consistory also provide scholarships to high school students which will help them become leaders of tomorrow.

Under the leadership of T. C. Almore in the 60ís and later Wiley Spence in the 70ís, Jackson Consistory has grown to become the largest in the State with membership approaching 200.
