Grand Lodge Building...

By: P. Tony Christophersen
Grand Secretary

The Grand Lodge of New Mexico is located at 1638 University Blvd. NE in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The current building was built in 1968 after the Temple Lodge No. 6 building at 7th & Central in downtown Albuquerque burned down where the Grand Lodge had its offices.

The entrance to the building is on the South side of the building because it is directly across from the doors of the UNM Continuing Education building which was originally the “New” Temple Lodge No. 6 and the Ballut Abyad Shrine center.

(See picture gallery below.)

The foyer has a magazine rack with information about Masonry, and some items and posters for various bodies are hung as well on your way in.

Once in the lobby you’re greeted by the photo of the Grand Master accompanied by photos of the Living PGMs. As a PGM you definitely want your picture to stay in the lobby.

Off the lobby is the Library which is the domain of WB Tyler Anderson, the Grand Historian. Also pictures of our other PGMs.

The Library may look familiar to you if you tuned into the Zoom Installation during COVID.

A couple more bailiwicks of the Grand Historian… the museum and the upper vault (we have two to hold “the records of Freemasonry” to protect them “as well from inundation as conflagration” I’m still exploring these area as you never know just what you might find. Lots of history here.

The Grand Masters Office and Conference/Board Room occupies the Northwest corner of the building.

The Grand Masters Apartment offers a home away from home for the Grand Master as well as other Grand Officers when traveling around the state.

The building also houses the Offices of the Grand York Rite and the Masonic Charities Foundation.

Ducks in a row.

The hub of the operation (and center of confusion) The Grand Secretary’s Office. Never know what your going to find going on here.

Want a better look? Give a call and we’ll setup some time to see more and experience some of our Grand Lodge’s great history!
