Driftwood Heritage

I have drifted down to Driftwood

In that grand old Texas State.

I have caught a mighty vision

Of an Empire-strong and great;

I have seen the Texas landscapes;

Caught the spirit-breathed the air;

Felt the handclasps of the people

Neighborly-beyond compare.

I have drifted down to Driftwood

Where all nature seems to speak.

I have wandered hither-thither

Down the banks of Onion Creek

And admired the land around it

Trees and grass and fertile loam.

It was all so very interesting

It made me feel at home.

Driftwood Masonic Lodge #1221 A.F. & A.M.

The land was obtained from a fellow member, Charlie Howard, and Mr. Logan Dye, a rock mason living in Dripping Springs was hired to build the two-story native limestone building.

 

On December 3rd 1924 they were granted a charter and adopted a constitution on January 2nd 1925.

 

They held their meetings once a month on a Saturday evening on or just before a full moon.

 

The Masonic Lodge lasted nineteen years.
