Tracing Boards

Featuring Worshipful Brother Gerald

Share this video
Tracing boards began with simple chalk drawings on the center of the lodge room floor. This practice dated back to a time when lodge meetings where often held above taverns or inns and the drawings had to be washed away after they had served their purpose. These early method were succeded by more permanent and detailed drawings or paintings on more portable media. Small clothes or canvases were illustrated with pertinent symbolism and displayed for the candidate during the course of a degree. Eventually as lodge rooms took on a more permanent air, larger, framed paintings came into being. These tracing boards would usually be put on display either stacked in front of the junior warden or individually placed at all three stations. Today these tracing boards are still used in different parts of the world but often not within the United States. ,
