Home Non-Operative Grand Lodge of England Growth Beyond England The Landmarks

By the middle of the 18th century, Grand Lodges had been formed in Ireland, Scotland, and on the continents of Europe and America. American Lodges originally fell under the British Grand Lodge as Colonies, but after the Revolution of 1776 and the United States of America were formed, the individual Lodges created a Grand Lodge under each state and new charters were issued.
