Administrative history

The OddFellow Lodge in Minnedosa was created in 1884. Membership was open to white males over the age of 21 who were in good health and had good moral character. The organization was established as a mutual friendly association to provide social and financial support to its members. According to its Constitution, OddFellow members have five duties: to visit the sick, to relieve the distressed, to bury the dead, to educate the orphan, and to aid the widow.The organization existed until 1991.
