CARROLLTON LODGE No. 1400, Ancient Free and Accepted Masons, is a fraternal organization of Freemasons that acts and conducts business according to the constitution, laws, and edicts of The Grand Lodge of Texas. It is not a religious organization, although it does require a belief in a supreme being.

Its goals are to advance the moral and social interests of its membership; to foster good citizenship, honest industry and upright living; to cultivate the exercise of charity in its best and broadest sense; to assist the widows and orphans of its deceased members; to stimulate friendship, harmony and brotherly love, and generally to promote, in its own way, the happiness of mankind --- it is a Fraternity of good men, linked together by honorable and indissoluble bonds, to accomplish these noble purposes, eschewing all interests in factional politics and sectarian religion and free from the dictation of both.
