In   1870   it   took   a   long   time   to   go   along   the   coast   of   California   from   the   mission   town   of   San Buenaventura,   to   the   other   mission   town   of   Santa   Barbara.   The   best   way   to   travel   then   was   by   horse and   buggy   but   the   road   was   a   rough   and   rugged   one.   When   the   causeway   was   later   built   along   the Rincon   highway,   travelers   could   pass   only   at   low   tide.   Journeys   had   to   be   timed   according   to   the   tide, and it took at least six hours to make the trip one way. We   can   almost   hear   the   conversation   on   that   long   road,   coming   home   from   the   Lodge   at   Santa   Barbara Saturday   night   on   the   full   moon,   when   Lemuel   C.   McKeeby   said   to   Brice   Grimes   and   Henry   Spear: "Why   don't   we   have   a   Masonic   Lodge   in   San   Buenaventura?" They   heartily   agreed,   and   the   rest   of   the ride   really   seemed   short   because   of   the   plans   they   were   formulating.   This   was,   perhaps,   the   very   first thing   which   occurred   in   the   history   of   San   Buenaventura   Lodge,   No.   214,   Free   and Accepted   Masons of the State of California.

Channel Islands Lodge No. 214 History
Channel   Islands   Lodge   No.   214   is   a   consolidation   of   4   Lodges,   San   Buenaventura   No.   214,   Poinsettia Lodge   No.   633.   Ojai   Lodge   No.   663   and   Camarillo   Lodge   No.   824.   Below   are   the   histories   of   633,   663 and 824.
