The need or desire to connect L'Enfant's original drawings for the city with Freemasonry relies on some still poorly researched history. Masonic meetings possibly took place in early Georgetown. Potomac Lodge in Georgetown has the enigmatic Bladensburg Bible that was published in Edinburgh in 1754. Stories recorded long afterwards claimed the book was used for pre Revolutionary Masonic rituals. Since Freemasonry teaches that one reason for belonging is to enable travel in foreign lands, Freemasons befriending each other in earliest Georgetown is a pleasant, but unsubstantiated conjecture.
