Sept. 23 – On this day in Montana history in 1862 the first recorded meeting of Masons in what would become Montana took place on the Mullan Road just west of what was to become Helena. Nathaniel Langford served as acting master, and with fellow Minnesotans David Charlton and George Gere in attendance went through the ritual of opening and closing a lodge. The event is recorded on an oil painting in the Masonic Library building in Helena.
