The 2014-2015 Trustees of the Masonic Hall and Home
Masonic Hall & Asylum Fund
The Trustees of the Masonic Hall and Asylum Fund were created by an act of the New York State Legislature in April of 1864. With that decree, this group was entrusted with the maintenance and protection of certain assets of the New York State Masonic Fraternity. It was empowered to build and maintain the Masonic Hall on West 23rd Street in New York City and out of the income derived from those buildings, operate a home for the relief, support and care of worthy Masons, their wives, widows and orphans.
Today, the Trustees maintain the operation of the Masonic Care Community, a multi-level senior health care campus complete with an independent retirement community and child care center that serves both employees and the general community. The Trustees over see the operation of Round Lake Camp in Northern Oneida County, which hosts the Camp Turk Summer program for children ages 8 to 16 and maintain the DeWint House, George Washington’s Headquarters and Historic Site in Tappan New York. They also administer the operation of the Grand Lodge Building of the New York State Masonic Fraternity located on West 23rd Street in New York City.
