Hi Leah--

The bible on view in Indianapolis will be there through February 22. It is not the Washington inaugural Bible, but, instead, the one on which he is said to have taken his oaths when initiated into Freemasonry. More on all of that at the Freemasons for Dummies blog: http://freemasonsfordummies.blogspot.com/2018/01/special-masonic-exhibits-come-to-indiana.html

And the museum has info about it on their own website: http://mlmindiana.org/museum/#Washington_Bible

And their hours can be found here: http://mlmindiana.org/contact/

Is the George Washington bible on display in Indianapolis now--January 26, 2018? If so for how long will it be on display , and what are the hours and days of the week? Thanks


Hi Richard.

We'd be happy to help you pursue this further. Could you tell us what kind of insight you're looking for?



I have a replica St. John's Lodge Washington mini Bible dated 1918. Inserted in the bible is a copy of a speech presented by R W Adolph Geering dated February 22, 1918. The speech has an orginal seal by St. John's Lodge. Could you please provide some insight?
