WhiteStone was founded in 1912 by the Grand Lodge of North Carolina to provide elderly Freemasons and Eastern Star members with a safe, comfortable home and medical care. This was a revolutionary concept a century ago—and WhiteStone continues to be the leader in all aspects of modern senior living.

The Freemasons and Eastern Star members of North Carolina are proud to carry on the tradition of accommodating and financially assisting the brothers and sisters of the State via the North Carolina Masonic and Eastern Star Home Foundation.

The North Carolina Masonic and Eastern Star Home Foundation Limited Liability Company (LLC) exists to provide financial assistance for elder care to eligible North Carolina Master Masons, their wives, mothers, daughters, sisters and widows, and to members of the Order of the Eastern Star and their affiliates. This financial assistance is made available by charitable contributions from the Masonic and Eastern Star foundations, from Masonic lodges and Eastern Star chapters, and from caring individual donors. The LLC continues a tradition of more than 100 years of North Carolina Masons and Eastern Stars providing charitable care to their elderly members and families.
