Our History: The Year was 1953, and the place was Dover, Delaware. Wilmington Lodge #307 agreed to be their sponsoring lodge, and thus with one-hundred eleven (111) charter members, Dover Lodge #1903 became a reality.. In June 1955, a local group of Doctors and Businessmen approached Dover Elks and offered as a gift, $5500.00 to purchase property. Through numerous fundraisers, a ground breaking ceremony transpired in August 1958. On November 16, 1961, a first meeting was held at then, the new Dover Elks Lodge #1903, on Forrest Avenue.
The Lodge Property on Forrest Avenue was sold in 2004, and after 10 years of discussing, a new LODGE building was constructed at 200 Saulsbury Road, Dover. Our move into the new LODGE was started on October 1st and 2nd, with occupancy on October 7th, 2005. Dedication of the new LODGE occured on November 26th, 2005.
