The opening meeting of St. Andrew's Lodge of Montague, P.E.I. took place on 5 November 1883 following dispensation from the grand Lodge of A.F. & A.M. of Prince Edward Island with 7 members and 5 visiting brethren in attendance. In January of that year the St. George's Lodge in Georgetown had voted to waive as much of its territorial jurisdiction as required for the organization of the new Montague Lodge. On 24 June of 1884, the Grand Master John Yeo issued a dispensation to 10 individuals to form a new lodge to called Saint Andrews U.D. On the same day a committee reported on the examination of the books of the new lodge and a charter was granted to St. Andrews to be known as No. 13. Angus MacPhail was Worshipful Master among 8 officers and 7other members for a total membership of 15. In January of 1890 a committee was struck to see to the building of a lodge. In 1926 a new Masonic temple was built on Main Street with the second floor functioning as the Lodge Room. This building was seriously damaged by fire on 20 January 1950 but was rebuilt in the same year. In 1983 the Lodge had a membership of 134 and to date continues to admit and demit members, confer degrees, attend divine services, visit between lodges, attend Grand Lodge meetings, and work to aid members and the community.
