The Order of the Eastern Star is a worldwide fraternal, non-profit, charitable service organization that is an associated body of the family of Masonry similar to Shriners, Scottish Rite, York Rite and others.
“Eastern Star strives to take good people, through uplifting and elevating associations of love and service as well as through precept and example, to build an Order which is truly dedicated to Charity, Truth and Loving Kindness.”
The Order of the Eastern Star was founded in the late 1800’s by Dr. Rob Morris, a Freemason, Master Mason and Poet Laureate of Masonry. Dr. Morris was married to Charlotte Mendenhall Morris, and together they developed the concepts and beliefs that formed the foundation for the Order of the Eastern Star.
