Each year, the George Washington Masonic Historic Site at Tappan Committee of our New York Grand Lodge marks the anniversary of the birth of our distinguished and revered Masonic Brother George Washington. Our nation’s first president and Founding Father, his Excellency George Washington set a most noble example as president, military hero, commanding general, cherished Masonic Brother and leader in our gentle Craft. This year will mark the 286th anniversary of his birth on February 22, 1732.

You and your lady and your Masonic friends are cordially and fraternally invited to join us at our upcoming celebration of Washington’s birthday on the grounds of DeWint House, the historic Washington Headquarters and Museum at Tappan.

Sean Brady and Gary Petagine, educators and historians, have visited us several times and presented stirring dramas centered on the events preceding the Benedict Arnold-John Andre treason. This play picks up on events following the treason trial. Light refreshments will be served.
