On April 7, 1967, Grand Master R. Franklin Gordy granted a dispensation for the formation of a new Lodge in Millville Delaware, known as Delaware Lodge, U.D. At the following Grand Lodge Annual Communication, the Committee on Charters reported that they had examined the officers of this Lodge, that “the 30 members of the Lodge are competent and able to support a new Lodge” and a charter be issued. On October 5, 1967, a charter was granted to Delaware Lodge No. 37 to meet in Millville, naming Paul L. Jackson, a Past Master of Doric Lodge No. 30, as their Worshipful Master and other Past Masters of Doric Lodge as Senior and Junior Wardens. Their charter members were mainly from Doric Lodge in whose facilities they initially met. They were formally constituted on October 21, 1967, Grand Master Elmer W. Randall, Jr. On September 7, 1969, a Special Communication of Grand Lodge was convened by Grand Master Warren F. Schueler for the purpose of dedicating and consecrating Delaware No. 37’s new Lodge building. This building in Dagsboro had formerly been used as a church, and required extensive work by the members to convert it to a useful Masonic facility. It was the second church to be converted, the first being by Brandywine Lodge No. 33 in January 1964.
