Our History

The Order of DeMolay started almost a century ago in Kansas City, Missouri in the year of 1919. Under the guidance of Frank S. Land, a local mason, nine young men formed DeMolay. They all were there for a common purpose, they needed brotherhood and guidance in their life.
Since then, DeMolay has provided just that for over a million young men. These young men include John Wayne, Walt Disney, Neil Armstrong, Willard Scott, and President Bill Clinton. DeMolay spans all walks of life.
