The Harmony Lodge was granted dispensation April 5, 1855 when the first 3 principal officers were installed with W. Bro. Win. Mussen, W.M. of York Lodge 286 G.R.I. presiding.

    1st W.M. was W. Bro. Jeremaih Taylor

    1st S.W. was Bro. John Brown

    1st J.W. was Bro. Henry Morgan

The W.M. was then regularly installed at a special Past Masters’ meeting in Hamilton on June 28, 1855. The Harmony Lodge, being formed prior to the Grand Lodge of Canada, was granted a warrant from the Grand Lodge of Ireland and numbered 358. The warrant was issued July 1856, however the Lodge held it’s first meeting as Harmony No. 27 on February 25, 1856. In 1858, after the union of the Ancient Grand Lodge and the Grand Lodge of Canada, The Harmony Lodge was renumbered as No. 57.
