About Our Lodge
On June 17, 1954 the Grand Lodge issued a Charter number 215 to Vista Lodge.

During the latter part of the 1970's a home for the Lodge was found within the Scottish Rite Temple on South Commercial street in Salem.

In 2011, Vista Masonic received the Gold level Lodge of Excellence Award from the Grand Lodge of Oregon, as well as awards for their support of public schools. Vista Masonic has a tradition of fine ritual work. Our lodge continues to focus on support for the Rainbow and Job’s Daughters and fraternal fellowship in the mid-Willamette Valley, as well as various charitable activities such as the Chemeketa Scholarships, Oregon Robotic Tournament sponsorship, and generous donations to Grand Lodge charities like the MESH fund and MSAP.

Freemasonry: The Craft

Freemasonry is a system of morality, veiled in allegory, illustrated by symbols. It is a religious in character, in that every mason must have a belief in a Supreme Being. It is a philosophy, which imparts moral and social virtues and fosters Brotherly Love. Its tenets have endured since man turned the first pages of civilization. They embody the understanding by which man can transcend ordinary experience and build "house not made with hands but eternal in the heavens"in harmony with the Great Architect of the Universe.
