Chris B. Ruli, historian of the Masonic Potomac Lodge No. 5 of the District of Columbia, will discuss "Georgetown's Oldest Fraternity: The Early History of Freemasonry in Georgetown." His free talk will cover the early history, notable members of the fraternity, and the uses of the George Washington gavel. The gavel is making a rare visit to Georgetown from its permanent home at the U.S. Capitol. President George Washington used the gavel during the ceremonial laying of the Capitol's cornerstone in 1793.
