Mount Tom Lodge was established in 1850 on the exact same date the city of Holyoke was incorporated as a town. Because so many of the early organizers of Holyoke — including many of the industrialists — were members of Mount Tom Lodge, there are strong connections between Lodge history and town history.

At present, the following three areas of historical interest relating to Mount Tom Lodge reside on this web site, published with knowledge and permission of the Lodge:

By-Laws and Membership of 1910: List of all members from 1850 through 1910, date of membership, and the Lodge By-Laws. Approximately 1,000 members listed.

Mount Tom Lodge 100th Anniversary Publication: A historical sketch of the Lodge, photographs of former and present Lodge locations, photographs of some members, and a selected time-line of interesting Lodge events from 1850-1950.
