Merkel Lodge #710 AF&AM is a regularly constituted Masonic Lodge under the Grand Lodge of Texas.

Merkel, Texas is on Interstate-20 between Ft Worth & El Paso, Texas - 15 miles west of Abilene,Tx.

We meet on the 4th Thursday of every month at 7:30 PM. We also practice & have fellowship nearly every Thursday at 7:30 PM.

If you're passing by on I-20 at the right time, please stop by & visit our friendly little Lodge. Dress is casual - come as you are.

If you are interested in becoming a Freemason, ask at a local Lodge, or ask a Freemason that you know, or e-mail me at
I'll try to get you some information on a Lodge near you.
