    Freemasonry was formally established in South Bend in 1842, when on May 24 of that year, St Joseph Lodge No.45 was chartered. There were 13 members. South Bend then had a population of about 500. Since that time the city has grown to a population of 100,000, and Masonry has grown in equal proportion.

Telling Time Masonically: John Haley Bellamy’s Carvings


In March 1866, woodcarver John Haley Bellamy (1836-1914) wrote to his father noting that his brother Elisha was “doing well – making the Masonic brackets.”  Between 1866 and 1872, Bellamy designed a number of wooden clock cases, frames and what-not shelves with Masonic symbols, many of which he patented. The survival of so many examples today – including eleven in the Scottish Rite Masonic Museum & Library collection – attests to their popularity at the time.
