50th Anniversary




Lee Lockwood 50th Anniversary

The 50th Anniversary of the Lee Lockwood Library and Museum is approaching. We at the Scottish Rite Foundation of Texas along with the Waco Scottish Rite Bodies, the Lee Lockwood Library & Museum, and the 50th Anniversary Committee members have been working very hard on the 50th Anniversary, while also working to bring the building into the public eye here in Waco. Over the last three years, we have been renovating and redesigning the Library and Museum. Our goal is to bring the building into the modern age and include ourselves in the Waco tourist circuit.
On September 21, 2019, we will hold a Grand Re-Opening “Golden Gala: A Night at the Museum” 50th Anniversary celebration that will be open to the public and will act as the first event of the new Lee Lockwood Library and Museum. All proceeds from the Gala will go towards the preservation of the Lee Lockwood Library and Museum.
We are asking that everyone participate in the Gala so that we can continue to enjoy this magnificent building for another 50 years as we serve our Fraternity and Community. Please contact us here at Lee Lockwood if you have any questions or you can visit our website www.leelockwood.org for more information. Tickets and sponsorship information is available online.
