The Henry Wilson Coil Library & Museum of Freemasonry is named after noted Masonic author and Brother Henry Wilson Coil.

The author of eight books, Coil’s most notable work is Coil’s Masonic Encyclopedia (1961, revised in 1996), the last well-known Masonic encyclopedia published by an American author.
Founded in 1996 with a generous contribution from Henry Wilson Coil, Jr., the library and museum collections and archives cover centuries of Masonic history as well as more than 150 years of Freemasonry in California.
The museum contains a large collection of rare items pertaining to Freemasonry around the world: aprons, medallions, collars, sashes, earthenware, silverware, photographs, paintings, and patents, to name a few.
The fraternity’s material culture is distinct and its artistry reveals the various times in which the museum’s pieces were made.
Our virtual exhibits tell many stories, with a particular focus on the Masonic influence on the development of the state of California.
