A century ago there were more than 3,000 Masonic lodges, which can be described as "Moon Lodges"; in 1954 there were fewer than 500. These lodges meet on the day of the full moon for practical reasons; the brethren had light to travel home after dark. The advent of electricity, streetlights, and the automobile made the reason for meeting on such nights antiquated through unique. Minnesota had a number of these Lodges. Accacia Lodge #51 still meets on the Wednesday of any week that has a full moon in it..
