The Frankford Odd Fellows Lodge #14 (1829-1987)

Presented by: Justin C. Bailey, Secretary, Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania, Independent Order of Odd Fellows

April 2019 marked the 200th Anniversary of Odd Fellows in America.  In 1824 the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania was chartered followed by the establishment in 1829 of Odd Fellows Lodge #14 in Frankford. Originally named after Thomas Wildey, the founder of American Odd Fellowship, it was renamed Oxford Lodge #14 and remained in existence until 1987 when it consolidated with the still existing Henry Disston Lodge #8 in Tacony.

Secretary Bailey will discuss American Odd Fellowship with specific information about local Lodges. He will also present the Historical Society of Frankford with the complete minutes of the 190 year history of Lodge #14 for accession into its Library Collection
