Welcome! Metropolitan Lodge is a non-profit organization which embodies an attractive system of morality, veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols. The fraternity founded on Christian principles established in the Holy Bible, strives to teach a man the duty he owes God, his neighbor and to himself; but interferes neither with religion or politics as it prescribes the practice of virtues in the conduct of its business. The foundation is character. Its purpose is service. its measure is giving. Making "Good Men Better" perpetuates its foundation. Its purpose is service, which is rendered to the people of Dallas County to improve their social, cultural and economic conditions. On March 22, 1903 M.C. Cooper, J.R. Bluitt, Enos Whitaker, B.F.
