Central Lodge No. 1 F&AM PHA

Chartered in 1856, Central Lodge No. 1 F&AM PHA is Indiana's oldest Prince Hall Masonic lodge.

Central Lodge Number 1 F&AM of Indianapolis, Indiana was originally named, warranted, and chartered as Union Lodge Number 5 by the Grand Lodge of Ohio on August 1, 1849.

At the formation of "The Independent Union Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons" of the State of Indiana on September 13, 1856, the lodge number was changed from Number 5 to Number 1.

A convention was held on June 25, 1873, under the leadership of Grand Master William H. Russell where the name of the Grand Lodge was changed to the "The Most Worshipful Independent Union Grand Lodge of the State of Indiana"; and, Union Lodge Number 1 of Indianapolis was consolidated with Gleaves Lodge Number 2 of Indianapolis; and, was renamed as CENTRAL LODGE NUMBER 1 to avoid conflict with the name of the Grand Lodge.

Today, Central Lodge Number 1 continues to serve Indiana as one its premier and most esteemed Prince Hall Masonic Lodges, carrying on a 155+ year legacy of making good men better.
