Meridian obtained a warrant on June 3, 1869. The charter was issued on July 22, 1869, with 10 Charter members, of which eight were from South Side Lodge (the Mother Lodge) and one each from Jephtha and Delta Lodge.

These brothers eventually obtained a fondness for pickles because the first lodge room was over a pickle factory on Grant Avenue. After 15 years they moved to new quarters on the corner of Main Street and Union Avenue, where they remained 32 years. In 1916 Meridian proudly purchased and built a new temple on the corner of Willow Avenue and Main Street. This temple was financed through the sale of $25. 00 bonds to the membership.

Meridian Lodge is the proud Mother Lodge of Bay Shore Lodge No. 1043 and Babylon Lodge No. 793
