Acacia Lodge No. 16 A.F. & A.M. was chartered December 11, 1877 by The Grand Lodge Ancient, Free & Accepted Masons of Virginia, it is in Masonic District No. 4, and located in the historic Town of Clifton in Fairfax County Virginia.

Acacia is a good old country Masonic Lodge, it might even be called a railroad Lodge by some, one that you would be proud to be a member of. We are a rather laid-back Lodge, and welcome you to come to Lodge dressed as you feel comfortable (even shorts and Hawaiian shirts in summer months).

Built in the circa 1870's Acacia Lodge is a historical landmark listed with the Department of Interior since 1985.

Acacia's motto is "The Greatest Little Lodge in the Commonwealth of Virginia."

Stated communications (monthly business meetings) are held each month on the 1st Thursday starting with a dinner and social hour at 6:30pm. The business meeting starts at 7:30pm. Non-Masons and Masons alike are welcome for dinner.

Called communications (special meetings) take place several times throughout the year, primarily for the purpose of conducting Masonic degree work (initiating new members,) and regularly scheduled ritual practice. See the Calendar
