The first Masonic Lodge in North America, Lodge # 1, was in Charleston, South Carolina. Charleston was still part of the American Colonies then.
Several of the old cemeteries here have sections own by the original Lodges.
Charleston has many old alleys running through town. Most date back to the original settlement, some are still cobblestone or ballast rock. Lodge Alley (home of Solomon’s Lodge #1) is one of them.
