The Lodge was consecrated on 30th September 1921 at The Town Hall St. Albans by RW Bro Rt. Hon Sir Frederick Halsey, Bart, Provincial Grand Master, under the sponsorship of Halsey Lodge No. 1479. In 1920, Halsey Lodge No. 1479 and St. Albans Lodge No. 2786 called a joint meeting to which Brethren living in the Harpenden area were invited to consider forming a new Lodge in the area.

The Harpenden Brethren were so enthusiastic that they took the initiative and with the blessing of the two St. Albans Lodges, the Harpenden Lodge was formed. The popularity of the new Lodge was such that to cope with the number of applicants, there were occasions when three ceremonies were conducted in one meeting with two candidates at each ceremony, and once, four candidates were passed (by Dispensation).
