Join Alex and Robert as they chat with Bro. Rob Moore, the lead curator, archivist, and guide for the biggest masonic building in the world! Detroit Masonry began long ago during the military lodge era prior to the American Revolution. Bro. Moore shares insight about those early days of the first British lodges on the American frontier and how they played a role in England's hope to push French colonists out. He also talks about Michigan Masonry's unique role in (or out of) the Baltimore Convention, the George Washington artifacts used at the commemoration of the Detroit Masonic Temple, and more! We also take a look at a Rolling Stones album cover, and discuss various famous musicians who have played in the building as well as one who stepped up recently to support it financially!
