More about Cherrydale

Cherrydale Lodge meets on the first and third Thursdays at 3805 Lee Highway in Arlington, VA, above Cherrydale Hardware, a neighborhood institution since 1938. In July and August we only meet on the third Thursday and in December we meet only on the first Thursday.

Aside from the cars in the photo above, the temple looks almost exactly the same as it did when this was taken, probably in the mid to late 1960s. One other difference is that the windows upstairs were bricked over at some point after we got air conditioning.

Come on by. We look forward to seeing you!
