FREEHOLD TAVERN
Freemasons Tavern Harnall La Until 1879 this was the FREEHOLD TAVERN, so the early history of this pub is found under that name. The original freemasons were stone masons in mediaeval Europe who operated a closed shop system. They used secret signs to exclude what would now be called cowboy builders. In modern times the freemasons are members of a fraternal society that does a certain amount of charitable work. In 1879 the Freemasosn was recorded as a Beerhouse. In c1991 the pub closed to become a Jalalabad Temple.
