How many brothers have ever taken pictures of the cornerstone of your lodge.  Here's the one from my lodge.  Thought I'd share it with you Brothers.

I'll have to take and post a pic of the cornerstone at our county courthouse...its really different from others that I've seen.  Good topic, btw.  I'll have to stop by the lodge to take some pics of our cornerstones...we have three!!!
Update:
I finally got around to remembering to take a pic of the Pontotoc County Courthouse's cornerstone.  Here it is:

I will try to locate the picture I have of my Mother lodge's cornerstone.
+1 on this being a good topic.

Can anyone tell me what the extra devise is on the square and compasses in the picture I posted above?  A quadrant, perhaps??  Like I posted earlier, this cornerstone is on our county's courthouse, and not a masonic lodge...I don't know if that makes a difference or not.

Methinks it's a quadrant, too.
I can remember using a compass at school with such an attachment and if my memory is correct, it had the degree markings on it.

Notice the points of the compasses in regard to the square in this photo?  I thought that was very interesting, as I've never seen it in a cornerstone.

I should have thought to write in a non-disclosure on that one...my bad, y'all.  Not really seeking a response to my prior statement...simply noting the symbol.
