On July 10th, 1797, the Montgomery Lodge of Masons held their first meeting in the house of Dr. Nathaniel Miller – still standing on Myrtle Street. Paul Revere, the great American patriot, in the capacity of the Most Worshipful Grand Master, signed the charter of the Montgomery Lodge and officiated on this date at their chattering ceremonies in Norfolk.
