Haunted Chambers, the lives of early women Freemasons.

Haunted Chambers by Karen Kidd

Haunted Chambers by Karen Kidd

Join Masonic Central this Sunday, June 28th at 6pm PDT / 9pm EDT as we meet and talk to Br. Karen Kidd, the author of the new book Haunted Chambers: The Lives of Early Women Freemasons.

The topic of the program is a haughtily debated one, and certain not to be decided in the time we spend in the program.  But we will discuss the book, some of the notable history of Feminine Freemasonry, and perhaps explore what that means today.

From the site:

These women aren’t supposed to have existed.

But they did.

Haunted Chambers“, for the first time ever, presents not only the most complete list of early women Freemasons but also as much detail about their lives as can still be found. Here are their stories, long suppressed, ignored and marginalized. They include medieval women stone cutters; so-called “adoptive” women Freemasons; an aristocrat; a countess; an early New Brunswick settler; a war hero; a writer of women’s rights; an immigrant Irish girl; the famed sculptress of Abraham Lincoln’s statue in the US Capitol Rotunda and many whose names are now lost.

Some will find this book a challenge. Some would rather it never had been written, let alone published. “Haunted Chambers” is highly recommended to anyone who wants the actual history of these early women Freemasons and aren’t afraid to read it.

This is a special hour and a half long program on Masonic Central on Sunday June 28th starting at 6pm PDT/9pm EDT to explore the dark and mysterious Haunted Halls of history and its impact on Freemasonry today.   In the last half hour we will open a segment for your questions and comments to the author live on the air.  To ask your questions call: (347) 677-0936 during the program.

You can listen to the program live from our home at Blog Talk Radio here and join in with our live program chat, or from our player widget on our website at Freemasoninformation.com

A devoted student of the Western Mystery Traditions, Greg is a firm believer in the Masonic connections to the Hermetic traditions of antiquity, its evolution through the ages and into its present configuration as the antecedent to all contemporary esoteric and occult traditions. He is a self-called searcher for that which was lost, a Hermetic Hermit and a believer in “that which is above is so too below.” Read more about Greg Stewart.


  1. Namaste

    Blessings to all vibrations; which each resonance is Divine…

    I am anxious to tune into this show. I think that this is an interesting and shadow dispelling topic to say the least…

  2. I think they are all from Connecticut… 😉 you know, that jurisdiction that puts the word “enigma” in enigmatic. LOL / Just kidding.

  3. Sorry post this twice but I was hoping to catch you as quickly as possible. Please feel free to delete copies after you are able to respond. This message is for Greg Stewart. I love the new site and Masonic Central. Recently while browsing the web for questions or comments about Freemasonry I came across a newly opened thread on a Sean Hannity (I know…) discussion board posted by someone who is either a devout Catholic or a Fundamentalist Christian. They were looking for a Mason to talk about Masonry.

    I registered just to respond. And boy was I astounded! I received MANY complimentary posts thanking me and on Blessing me for being a Shriner.

    At any rate, I have also been going back and forth with a woman who SEEMS very interested in becoming a Co-Mason. I gave her a link to your up coming show with Karen Kidd. She seems at a loss as to who to contact, etc. So I told her that I would try to put her in contact with you (you seem very knowledgeable and well connected) with a private message to her with an email address so you don’t get flamed by any nuts (although, so far, there seems to have been only one in the thread). But I can’t seem to locate an email address for you. Could you privately email one I can refer her to?

    Here is the address for the Hannity thread:


    This is I believe in reverse from first post asking a Mason to comment to the last. Many of the people seemed quite nice and there is a later one from a Native American that is very profound and a great compliment to Masonry.

    The woman interested in Co-Masonry goes by the screen name of StoneScratcher.

    My Greatest Fraternal Thanks for any help you might be able to give this woman even if only providing her with another contact!
