Over 160 years ago, St. Mark's Lodge No. 7 became the first Lodge of Prince Hall Free and Accepted Masons founded in Columbus, Ohio. Learn more about the men who were members of this historic institution and the impact they had on the Columbus and Masonic community.

From the first African-American to serve on the Columbus school board, to Alpha Hospital which was created to serve the African-American community, St. Mark's members have left their imprint on the community.

Brethren have been chosen by the Craft since 1852 to lead the Lodge an instill the principles of the Fraternity into the membership.
