Notes
Niagara Lodge No. 2 is the oldest lodge in Ontario, but unfortunately most of its masonic documents, clothing and other treasures were destroyed in the War of 1812-14, and later in 1860 fire which consumed the Lodge meeting room on Queen Street. The remaining artifacts and gifts from individual members found their place in the "Historical Room".
A library and museum were established on the second floor of the Masonic Hall and officially open to the public in spring 1981, during an "open house".
The Museum was named after Bro. Colin Duquemin in 2007 for his work in preserving this significant collection.
