Welcome to Crystal Lodge #122
The Lodge was founded in 1902 by 16 Master Masons who lived in Marysville at the time. Many of them were in business together, worked together, some were related to each other and many attended the same churches and social events.
The Lodge first met at the location of where the Marysville Opera house is located today, which is the rebuilt IOOF (International Order of Odd Fellows) hall. They met in the original hall in 1902.
In 1928 the members of the Lodge purchased the parcel of land at 5th and Columbia for the building of their own lodge. It had to be cleared of trees, underbrush, and numerous stumps before the building could begin to be constructed in 1931. By 1934 the lodge was dedicated, after 3 years of sweat and toil of good men and the final product brought beauty to the community and pride to the builders.

It is comprised of adult men (21+) of good character from every country, religion, race, age, income, education, and opinion, all whom believe in a Supreme Being.
It's body of knowledge and system of ethics is based on the belief that each man has a responsibility to improve himself while being devoted to his family, faith, country, and fraternity.
