Located 28 miles west of Portland in Forest Grove, the Grand Lodge is used for the offices of the Grand Master, Grand Secretary and staff to serve the 109 constituent Masonic Lodges in the State of Oregon. It is also a friendly port for Sojourners from throughout the nearly 3 million member world-wide fraternity. The office also houses the Grand Lodge Library and Museum, both of which are open to the public during office hours.

The Grand Lodge office is adjacent to two additional properties which house the Jennings McCall Continuing Retirement Community (owned and operated by the Grand Lodge of Oregon and the Order of the Eastern Star) and the original Masonic home now being occupied and operated by McMenamins Inc., as a popular neighborhood gathering spot and hotel.
