Honor. Integrity. Truth.

For 300 years, we’ve helped good men become the best versions of themselves through a dedicated fraternity and by taking an oath to live a life of integrity, service and brotherly love. We don’t just make men better. We make men Masons.

Welcome to the Scottish Rite – Valley of Chicago

The Scottish Rite Valley of Chicago is a fraternity of brothers committed to going deeper into the highest principles, teachings, and ideals of the Masonic craft. It is open to all Master Masons looking to continue the journey of self-discovery and finding a deeper sense of purpose and strive to be good men who want to be better.

Honor. Integrity. Truth. Character.
