The Ionic Lodge, originally known as the Corinthian Lodge, was established in 1868. It had its roots in the Camden Lodge, No. 15, which served as the “parent” lodge for Corinthian. The transformation into Ionic Lodge No. 94 occurred on February 23, 1869.

Throughout its history, Ionic Lodge boasted a membership roster filled with prominent figures from Camden. Some of these distinguished individuals included George A. Williams, Frank S. Fithian, J. Hartley Bowen, Charles T. Murray, Robert K. Draper, George E. Boyer, Wallace M. DuBois, Frederick Himmelein Jr., William E. Cross, William S. Casselman, William A. Butcher, Josiah Matlack, J. Alpheus Vansant, Dr. George T. Robinson, Henry Fetters, John Foster, Edward West, Sidney P. McCord Sr., Charles M. Ferat Sr., Albert C. Jones, James Wilson, James H. Long, and William Vannest Silver, among others.

Similar to many other organizations, businesses, and individuals in Camden, Ionic Lodge made the decision to relocate to suburban areas after World War II. Consequently, on December 15, 2004, Ionic Lodge No. 94, together with Trimble Lodge No. 117 and Universal Lodge No. 216, was reestablished as USS New Jersey Lodge No. 62, Free & Accepted Masons, with its new base in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.
