Images of Masonic Lodges in New Jersey

I recently signed a contract with Arcadia Press to publish an Images of America series volume on Freemason Lodge buildings in New Jersey. I was hoping some of you on this listserv would know if you had any images of Lodge buildings in your collections. Right now I am in the initial stages of collecting images (and their rights), so if you know of any images please let me know!

You can contact me through H-Net or via email at erichmhuhn@gmail.com.
