Masonic Order of the Bath

The Masonic Order of the Bath, originally called the Wahoo Band is a "fun" Degree open to all Master Masons.

The first Band formed on June 21st, 1921, in Red Bank, NJ, by 9 Brothers from Mystic Brotherhood Lodge No.21. This group did not bring in any new members for 6-years and it wasn't until January 20th, 1931, that they reached 20-members as well as bringing in 3 honorary members. By 1942, they had 37 active members and 56 honorary members.

In 1941, the organization went through a reformation where it was renamed the Masonic Order of the Bath for the United States of America while the Wahoo Band became an appended degree. The Order continued to expand with honorary members wherein 1955 they had 393 honorary members with 37 active members.

When one is initiated he is consecrated, created, and dubbed a Knight of the Masonic Order of the Bath of the United States of America. The Order is led by a High Council with the following elected officers: Commander-General, Deputy Commander-General, Lt. Commander-General, Captain General, Keeper of the Bath Keys, Keeper of the Bath Records, Keeper of the Bath Door, and Keeper of the Bath Mat. This body currently meets during Masonic Week.
