Our History


The Old Halesonian Lodge was founded in December1951 by Seth Somers, a well respected business owner in Halesowen Town and benefactor of many charities and good works around the Halesowen and Black Country area. He was Treasurer of the United Grand Lodge of England and became a Mason because of the Community and Worldwide Charity work that Freemasonry has been responsible for over the last 300 years since the Institution was founded in England for the practice of moral and social values among its members in Lodges and communities around the World.

Seth Somers and other well known Halesowen inhabitants and ex pupils of Halesowen Grammer School were Founders, and contact is maintained with the now Earl’s High School, but Lodge membership is now open to anyone interested in the well being of the people in Halesowen and Black Country areas. We have a wide ranges of ages and backgrounds in our membership, working together as good friends enjoying the Fellowship of Lodge meetings and the many family social and charity fund raising events each year.

A family – friendly organisation seeking new members to carry on our 67 year traditions within the local community where we actively supprt many varied Charity Organisations.

An Open Day is arranged for Saturday 30th March 2019 at the Masonic Hall, Newfields, Furnace Lane, Halesowen, B63 3LU when we invite people interested in joining to explore the facilities and discuss all aspects of the character and fellowship provided within Freemasonry.

Meantime anyone interested before then please contact us on Facebook for further discussions.
