Funds were raised by the members to construct a meeting place on the corner of Gillies & Duncan Streets, Fairfield and the members held regular meeting at Fairfield until the members determined to sell the property during 1990-1991.
Just prior to selling the property a number of Lodges in adjacent districts considered options to hand in their Charter or amalgamate with other Lodges.
Meetings were held at Fairfield to establish options for the benefit of members and Freemasonry in general. Most members considered the principles of Freemasonry too valuable to let their membership lapse and members from Lodge of Ideals and Lodge of Justice agreed to incorporate their Lodges with Fairfield.
Grand Lodge Victoria approved the incorporation of Fairfield, Ideals and Justice Lodges and the names of the three Lodges are endorsed on the Charter from Grand Lodge.
Following the approval and endorsement of the Charter from Grand Lodge, Grand Lodge considered that no other lodges should be incorporated, but determined that the incorporation of Fairfield Lodge should remain.
No previous Lodges have ever been approved and incorporated by Grand Lodge and
Grand Lodge determined that Fairfield Lodge’s Charter will be the only Charter to be
recognised as an Incorporated Lodge. The incorporation of lodges is now prohibited by Grand Lodge.
This makes Fairfield Lodge No. 254 a unique Lodge in the Victorian jurisdiction, maybe in
Australia and the rest of the world.
