Buechel Lodge #896
F&AM was chartered October, 20, 1920 by the Grand Lodge
of Kentucky. Over the years Buechel Lodge grew and
gained members from all over the Louisville area. Many
were everyday men, and others were well known or
prominent business men.
Mr. Fegenbush, for
whom Fegenbush Lane was named after as well as Fegenbush
Orchards was a longtime member. Many of the lodge
brothers were World War Veterans as is the case with
many lodges across the country. These are men who have
made notable contributions to their community by serving
both God and their country.
Buechel Lodge members have always played a great role in
the Grand Lodge of Kentucky and in the Scottish Rite.
Past Master Arnold Wyatt, and Past Master John Moyers
are both Past Grand Masters of the Grand Lodge of
Kentucky. Past Grand Master John Moyers also served as
Sovereign Grand Inspector General in the Scottish Rite.
Buechel has had an impressive degree team for years both
in Blue Lodge and Scottish Rite in the 26th Degree.
Anywhere there is
an event involving Freemasonry, Buechel Lodge always
shows up with an impressive turnout of our membership.
