Our History

History Lesson

  • The Independent Order of Odd Fellows began in 18th Century England, it was deemed odd to find people organized for the purpose of giving aid to those in need without recognition and pursuing projects for the benefits of all mankind. 

  • Our deep history began in North America, with the United States and Canada in 1819, and is continually expanding throughout the World where we are a worldwide fraternity in 26 countries. The “Odd Fellows” and “Rebekahs” are striving to make the world a better place in which to live.

  • Odd Fellows have also become known in many areas as "The Three Link Fraternity" which is evidenced by our worldwide "Three Link Emblem" which stands for Friendship, Love, and Truth. These links symbolize the chain that binds our members together and illustrates that our Communities, States, Provinces and Nations are strongest when joined together.
