The JRO UAM

The  Junior Order of United American Mechanics – or ‘JRO UAM’ – was founded in 1853 in Pennsylvania. Opinions are divided as to the degree of association with the Freemasons. The order uses symbols commonly associated with Freemasonry – the square and compass- but has an image of an arm and hammer, instead of the ‘G’, in the centre.  In its hey-day, the JRO UAM had 200,000 members, but has been in decline since then. More information on the JRO UAM can be found here.
