The 21st Masonic District was officially constituted on July 1, 2017 as a new Masonic District by the authority of and under the jurisdiction of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of Florida following the passage of legislation at the 188th Grand Communication which called for the redistricting of all of the Masonic District and Masonic Zones in the State of Florida, the 21st Masonic District was a result of the merger of the 24th Masonic District in Polk County and the 25th Masonic District in Hardee and Highlands Counties. The new district consisted of fifteen lodges within a 100 mile radius starting in Central Florida traversing to the Tampa Bay and Sarasota regions.
