Prints of Robt. Jordan Portrait Available!

You and your lodge can now own a piece of our history by purchasing a print of Nebraska’s first Grand Master, Robert C. Jordan, produced from the portrait in the Grand Lodge Office in Lincoln.

Gifted to the Grand Lodge in 1884, Jordan’s portrait was recently restored by the Nebraska Masonic Foundation after years of neglect resulting in faded colors and holes in the canvas. Today, the painting is repaired and exhibits depth, detail and more vibrant colors.

The Foundation also produced 25 high-quality prints on acid-free, archival paper to withstand the passage of time for you and your brothers to enjoy for decades to come. They are available at https://nebraskamasonicfoundation.com/ for $149.95 if picked up at the Grand Lodge Office, or mailed securely at $159.95. Sales of the prints will help the Foundation defray restoration costs.

The prints are ready to be framed at a standard 16” x 20” size with a numbered and signed certificate of authenticity. 

The portrait was presented to the Grand Lodge of Nebraska by M.W.Bro. George Lininger on behalf of Omaha artist Mrs. Edwin Davis.
