The Lewis | The Father Son Legacy in Freemasonry
The Lewis Jewel commemorates the long legacy of fathers and son who share a common bond with our Fraternity.
Imagine having to lift and reposition hundreds or thousands of stones
The Lewis is a tool used by operative masons to facilitate the lifting and positioning of heavy stones. It is a strong yet simple design that serves as the connection between the stone and a crane or pulley system. In speculative Masonry, the son of a Mason is referred to as a Lewis.
In this episode of The Winding Stairs, lets explore the lewis jewel, the operative mason tool with the same name and what roles it plays in our fraternity today.

I am WM of Door to Virtue Lodge #46 in Maryland. I had the pleasure to bestow three Lewis Jewels on three brothers, all PM. They were 3rd generation Masons. They also served in consecutive terms in the East, something that we have not found an instance of before this.
