The Fraternal Order Exhibit

The Logan County History Center is pleased to present our new exhibit honoring some of the fraternal and sororal organizations in Logan County’s past and present. We hope the exhibit will give our visitors a better understanding and appreciation of the far-reaching effects these benevolent organizations have had, and in many cases, still have on their members and our community as a whole.

As special thanks to LCHS Archivist/Assistant Curator Beth Marshall for doing much of the research and writing for the exhibit, and to Archives volunteer Don Corwin for also providing hours of research and helping explain some of the intricacies of the fraternal orders.

            We would also like to thank the organizations and their members who have provided information and in some cases photographs and artifacts for the exhibit.
