Scottish Rite of Freemasonry

Valley of Washington
Orient of the District of Columbia

What We Do

“Human progress is our cause, liberty of thought our supreme wish, freedom of conscience our mission, and the guarantee of equal rights to all people everywhere our ultimate goal.” – Scottish Rite Creed

We aim to provide a venue for Scottish Rite Masons in the Washington, DC metropolitan area to enjoy fellowship among men and brothers with common ideals; to learn and teach, and develop a deeper understanding of Masonic philosophy, and what it means to be a good man and a good citizen.
