Located on 395 S Thomas St., the Temple has just recently celebrated its 130th Anniversary for local Free and Accepted Masons and Masonry.  Lodge 246 has been a beacon of tolerance, personal growth, ethics, freedom and self-empowerment. From helping to establish the nation’s first public school systems to helping bring California’s public schools out of crisis, Masons have been on the forefront of major issues throughout history. Pomona Proud was given a unique opportunity to get a sneak peek inside the Mason Lodge and speak with Javier Torrez-Plascencia, a Mason elder, who gave us information about the Pomona Masons, and allowed us to take exclusive photographs inside Pomona Lodge 246. IMG_2484 Masonic Temple The "Brotherhood" over the many decades has managed to captivate the hearts of others within the community, and create a curiosity for many of the local residents of what was inside this beautiful building.. The Fairplex Garden Railroad recently set a model replica of the Pomona Lodge.  In fact, as an additional honor, Torrez-Plascenia put an actual piece of the building inside the replica. It truly shows what Pomona means to the Freemasons. Masonic Temple The satisfaction of being part of a centuries-old Brotherhood whose traditions and core values are still relevant today and will endure for centuries to come is an important reason why people still become California Masons.
