There's not a lot on Ocracoke Island, but there is a Masonic Lodge. In fact, Ocracoke Lodge No. 747 is the home of our affiliated Past Master, Worshipful Henry Amos Rodgers, where he served as Worshipful Master in 1981. Worshipful Rodgers affiliated with Kempsville Lodge in 1986 after moving to Virginia Beach.

If you find yourself down on the island, check it out.
