Moon Lodge

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..
