F&AM Camanio Lodge No. 19 - Chartered 1872
The oldest Masonic Lodge in Snohomish County is Camanio Lodge No. 19 at Stanwood. Originally established at Utsalady, Camano Island, Island County, it moved to Stanwood in 1890.
May 02, 1872, MW Brother Granville O. Haller, a retired US Army Colonel, a veteran of the Mexican, Indian and Civil wars, Grand Master of Masons in Washington Territory, granted a dispensation to organize a Masonic Lodge at Utsalady. The petition for dispensation had been approved by Whidby Island Lodge No. 15 at Coupville. The petition did not propose a name for the new lodge and Grand Master Haller suggested the name of their island, incorrectly spelling it "Camanio". The incorrect spelling has never been corrected. The dispensation named the following officers: William Fowler, Worshipful Master; Andrew Frazer, Senior Warden; and Colin Chrisholm, Junior Warden. The Lodge was convened by Grand Master Haller, the following quotation being taken from the Annual Address to Grand Lodge in 1872.
"The brethren very prudently proceeded to erect a suitable hall before holding meetings, and on the 18th day of August last, the Saturday preceding the full of the moon, I had the pleasure of convening and setting the craft to work in their new hall. The energy and zeal of this new Lodge gives promise of great usefulness."
