Magnolia Lodge, a Masonic lodge, was founded to gather Kappa Alpha Freemasons in celebration of our shared traditions and legacy. Kappa Alpha Order owes much of its organization and customs to the Masonic experience of such leaders as Samuel Zenas Ammen, James Ward Wood, and William Sprigg Hamilton. In like manner, generations of Kappa Alphas have played significant leadership roles in the Craft and Southern Freemasonry in particular. Our lodge was instituted as a living memorial to these brethren - inspired both by the example of Robert E. Lee and the teachings of this ancient fraternity.
Formed as a traditional Craft lodge warranted by the Grand Lodge, Free and Accepted Masons (F.A.A.M.), of the District of Columbia, Magnolia gathers Kappa Alpha Masons throughout the United States. Brethren currently reside in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Washington City.
Magnolia was chartered on December 21, 1996—the traditional anniversary of Kappa Alpha Order's foundation in 1865.
