The Alexandra Lodge received its charter in 1867 and originally met in Alexandra, now called Pirongia in the Western part of the Waikato. The rough terrain and climatic conditions of the area made farming very difficult those early days.
When many of its ex-colonial soldier, settler/farmer members moved away from the area to gold-mine on the Coromandel or dig for kauri gum on the Hauraki Plains, the number of Lodge members fell significantly.
The Lodge subsequently moved to Hamilton.
Today, it continues to meet on a regular basis in the Waikato Masonic Centre that it shares with two NZ Constitution Lodges and a number of other Masonic organisations.
Alexandra follows the ceremonial practices of the Lodge of Emulation, No 21.
