Open for Everyone. Founded in 1871, the Masonic Village at Lafayette Hill joined the Masonic Villages in 2004. The Masonic Villages also provide living options and other services in Dallas, Elizabethtown, Sewickley and Warminster, Pa. While our not-for-profit villages are built upon and strengthened by Masonic values, our communities are committed to serving Masons and non-Masons alike.

Instead, spend your days doing what you choose – exploring amenities on campus, planning trips to the city, spending time with friends and family and much more.
