The Name:  Andrew Horton Military lodge No. 8

Andrew Horton was a mason and a member of Sabre Lodge No. 7, Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Oregon.  He was instrumental in keeping Prince Hall charter while there was no active lodge in Idaho.  We chose to honor him because of not only his Masonic duties but also his outstanding service to the city of Boise.  During the anual visit to Andrew Horton Military Lodge No. 8, the following traveled to the Owyhee Plaza Hotel located in Boised, ID to dedicate a plaque for Andrew Horton:  Most Worshipful Grand Master of Nevada, Prince Hall Affiliated Jessie J.
