photo4Since 1857 Sotoyome Curtis Lodge # 123 in Healdsburg California has been carrying the tradition of Freemasonry. Our Lodge has enjoyed an immense array of colorful and talented members and is currently experiencing an inspiring revival of new and old brothers coming together. Sotoyome or “Satiyomes” was the name of a native American tribe also known as, “the Wappo.” Now in present day Sonoma County California, extending along the Russian River, encompassing the Alexander Valley and present day Healdsburg , this is all known as the Sotoyome region, hence the name of our Lodge. In 1989 the Curtis Lodge #140 of Cloverdale consolidated into #123 and this is how we got the name Sotoyome-Curtis.
