The Masonic Villages of Pennsylvania
For more than 130 years, the Masonic Villages have been pursuing a vision of excellence to meet the needs of others. Below is a brief summary on how we became one caring family. More detailed information on each location can be found by clicking on the location name.
The Masonic Village at Lafayette Hill originated as The Masonic Home of Pennsylvania, founded in 1871. Previously located in Philadelphia, this haven for poor and sick Pennsylvania Freemasons relocated to Montgomery County in 1976 and currently offers continuing care retirement services for more than 250 residents. Meanwhile, in the center part of the state, The Masonic Village at Elizabethtown was founded as the Masonic Homes of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania in 1910, offering services to aging Freemasons and their spouses. The 1,400-acre campus with 1,700 residents has grown into a continuing care retirement community, including a health care center, children's home and residences for more than 1,700 residents.
