Odd Fellowship began in the Hawaiian islands on December 10, 1846. The first Odd Fellows’ Lodge outside the Continental United States.

Excelsior Lodge #1, I.O.O.F, is a fraternal organization, operating under a lodge system (IRS Code 501(c)8), and exists to provide for the benefit of its members. Our community service and charity activities are another “benefit” provided for our members to enjoy fellowship while actively doing events together. Our community service and charity activities are goal congruent with being a “benefit” to our members.

Excelsior Lodge #1, I.O.O.F. meetings are held the first and third Tuesdays of every month at the Lodge Hall.
