BLOG: Freemasons, the Founding Fathers and Sandusky

Tom Jackson • Nov 30, 2010 at 3:19 PM

Bestselling author Brad Meltzer, who has done much to popularize Sandusky's colorful Masonic past, begins his new series, "Brad Meltzer's Decoded," at 10 p.m. Thursday on the History Channel. The first episode concerns what happened to the first piece of the White House, which was laid down in a Masonic ceremony in 1792 and promptly disappeared.

Meltzer's novel, The Book of Fate, has plot elements that include Masonic symbols hidden in the street plan of Washington, D.C. In the course of researching his book, Meltzer discovered that Sandusky's streets were laid out as a Masonic symbol.
