In the United States, there is a Grand Lodge in each state. Within each state, there are several lodges located within many cities. They are known as a Lodge or Masonic lodge. Sometimes they are referred to as the Blue Lodge. After 1717 Masonry spead quickly to America. Many of our founding Fathers were Masons; George Washington to name one.
