In the year 1882, several of the Masonic Brethren in Windsor conceived the idea of forming another lodge in this locality and in consequence, petitioned Great Western Lodge, which was the only lodge in Windsor at that time for permission to do so.
Heading this group of Masons was our Late Brother George E. Copeland, founder of Copeland's Book Store, which still carries his name. Great Western Lodge granted permission and this was forwarded to Grand Lodge for approval. On July 13, 1883, at their annual convocation of the Grand lodge of Canada, a motion was passed to authorize the organizing under dispensation of Windsor Lodge. The following year at the next annual convocation of July 9th, 1884, the charter was granted.
Windsor Lodge No. 403 was instituted and dedicated on August 13, 1884.
First Friday at 7:30 PM except for July and August. If first Friday begins a holiday weekend, the meeting is held on the second Friday
