Freemasonry consists of fraternal organizations tracing their roots to the local stonemason fraternities that governed the qualifications of stonemasons and their contact with authorities and customers from the end of the 14th century.
Origination of Freemason
The origin of Freemasonry in Ghana can be traced back to the early nineteenth century when the country consecrated its first Masonic lodge.
