Masonic Home of Florida
The Masonic Home of Florida is situated on 18 acres of lush landscaping on the shores of Coffee Pot Bayou. Named by Spanish explorers, this picturesque inlet off Old Tampa Bay is surrounded by the finest neighborhoods in the area and close to major shopping centers and dining in Downtown St. Petersburg.
This choice waterfront location has been owned and operated by the Grand Lodge of Florida since the early 1900’s and shares a century old tradition with the City of St. Petersburg. The Home was originally set aside for children slowly turning over to the needs of senior Masons and their wives/widows as aging demographics changed. A series of building expansions beginning in 1973 brought us to the present 150,000 square foot Home which can accommodate up to 187 Residents in a state-of-the-art setting. There are gracious lobbies, an elegant dining room overlooking the grounds and water, a 5,000 volume library, billiards and activities rooms, gift shop, community kitchenettes and lounges, a chapel, waterside pavilion and fishing pier plus a host of other amenities which make the Masonic Home one of the premiere facilities of its kind in Pinellas County. Recently, the City of St. Petersburg presented The Masonic Home a Mayor’s First Place Award for Building and Grounds Beautification.
Travis Brumbaugh, Worshipful Master in 2019 makes a donation to the Masonic Home “Building a Foundation for the Next Hundred Years” campaign on behalf of the Lodge. The Lodge also supports the home through individual donations to the Masonic Home Endowment Fund (FA-100) and by contributions to Let Your Pennies Make Good Cents (L.Y.P.M.G.C)
