The Masons stationed a speaker in each of the ornate rooms that the labyrinth of the tour would visit, a course which moved horizontally and vertically across multiple rooms and floors. The Grand Lodge is not so much a wizardly castle as it is a commonly held ceremonial meeting house for members from all over New York State. These Masonic organs book these rooms for moments of great import in the history of their individual lodge. The Grand Lodge also proffers the Masonic creed of continuing education and intellectual growth by offering the services of a privately curated library which is open to the general public. This library holds an enormous cache of esoteric and rare documents in anticipation of scholarly interest.
