Grand Lodge of Iowa

All 50 states each have their own Grand Lodge with jurisdiction over member lodges within the state.  In Iowa, Masonic lodges are governed by the Grand Lodge of Iowa, AF&AM (GLoI).  The GLoI was founded in January, 1844 in Iowa City, Iowa.  The four charter lodges were Des Moines Lodge #1 in Burlington, Iowa Lodge #2 in Muscatine, Dubuque Lodge #3 in Dubuqe, and Iowa City Lodge #4 in Iowa City.
