Order of Knights of Pythias is an international, non-sectarian
fraternal order, established in 1864
in Washington, DC, by Justus H. Rathbone and was the first
fraternal order to be chartered by an
Act of Congress. It's aim was to heal the wounds of the Civil
War between the North and South and
promote friendship among men and relieve suffering.
Today in addition to doing charitable work, we sponsor dances,
and socials for members and guests.
