Platte City Lodge #504 meets at
100 West Main St. Farley, Mo.
Platte City has a vast Masonic history. The second Platte County Lodge to be charted was Platte Lodge No. 56, A.F.&A.M. of Platte City on October 14, 1842. This Lodge lived a rough and rugged life until 1859 when several members demitted and formed a new Lodge which was chartered May 28, 1859, as Zerubbabel Lodge No. 191. Many of the remaining members of Platte Lodge #56 were scattered by the Civil War. On July 15, 1864, Kansas “red legs” completed the wrecking of Platte Lodge by burning its hall and records. The few survivors then entered the younger Zerubbabel Lodge.
Zerubbabel Lodge was forced by financial troubles to give up its charter in 1879. Platte City staggered along without a Masonic Lodge until 1881 when Platte City Lodge No. 504 was granted a Dispensation April 15th.
Recently, due to deteriorating conditions of the old building, the members of the lodge decided to sell the property and rent space from Compass Lodge #120 in Parkville some 10 or 12 miles south of Platte City.
