Invisible Lodge was founded in 1953 as a club for Masonic Magicians by Sir Felix Korim of England, who served as the organization’s first President.

The club followed its own ritual, which encompasses elements from both Masonry and the world of illusion. Members have included Blackstone, Okito, and Jack Gwynne.

Membership in the Invisible Lodge is limited to those persons interested in magic and have been raised to the Sublime Degree of Master Mason. The publication of the Invisible Lodge is called the “Trestle Board” and is published quarterly, giving information on the Masonic and Magical activities of the members.

The annual stated meeting of the Invisible Lodge is held in conjunction with the Columbus, Ohio Magic Fest.

The ZB Award, so named after the second president of the Invisible Lodge, Dr. Zina Bennett, is a certificate presented to any member who gives a total of five certified free performances for the residents of a Masonic Orphanage, Masonic Home for the Aged, or the patients of a Shrine Hospital. Another award is presented annually, known as the Harvey Award, to a member who has served the Invisible Lodge or Masonry with distinction.
