Have you heard the jokes around Freemasonry about “the goat”? Have you heard of the Odd Fellows (IOOF)? Well, in this episode of Historical Light our resident historians tackle both topics head-on with a special guest, Ainslie Heilich. To top things off, Ainslie is our first guest on the show that is not a Freemason, but rather an Odd Fellow. We get to go on a special private tour of an Odd Fellows lodge and tackle the issue of the goat head-on in the process. You will not want to miss this episode!
Join Alex and Robert as they chat with Bro. Rob Moore, the lead curator, archivist, and guide for the biggest masonic building in the world! Detroit Masonry began long ago during the military lodge era prior to the American Revolution. Bro. Moore shares insight about those early days of the first British lodges on the American frontier and how they played a role in England's hope to push French colonists out. He also talks about Michigan Masonry's unique role in (or out of) the Baltimore Convention, the George Washington artifacts used at the commemoration of the Detroit Masonic Temple, and more! We also take a look at a Rolling Stones album cover, and discuss various famous musicians who have played in the building as well as one who stepped up recently to support it financially!
