Broken Arrow Lodge #243 AF&AM is organized under a Charter granted by the Grand Lodge of the State of Oklahoma. The Lodge was originally organized under the Grand Lodge of the Indian Territory. On December 25, 1903, the lodge met Under Dispensation. On August 10, 1904 it was chartered under the Grand Lodge of Indian Territory and was designated Lodge #141. Roscoe S. Plumlee was the first Worshipful Master. In 1907 the Indian Territory and the Oklahoma Territory were combined into the State of Oklahoma. Shortly thereafter the Grand Lodge of Oklahoma Territory and the Grand Lodge of the Indian Territory merged to become the Grand Lodge of the State of Oklahoma AF&AM and the Broken Arrow Lodge number was changed to #243.
Historically, many of the earliest lodges in Oklahoma were formed by Native Americans. Broken Arrow Lodge is proud of the involvement of the Native American tribes in Freemasonry and has many members who are of Native American decent.
The Broken Arrow lodge has been located on the same square block in downtown Broken Arrow since its inception. It currently owns the building at 117 W. Commercial St. Broken Arrow, OK located in the Historical Rose District. A short lodge history is shown here, Digitized Oklahoma Grand Lodge Proceedings from as early as 1874 can be found here in the Archives of the George Washington Masonic Memorial.
The Lodge is governed by a slate of officers, some elected and some appointed. Those officers are shown below.
