The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks has a long and proud tradition in New Albany. Our lodge was chartered in 1893 and moved to our present location in 1902. The order itself was formed in 1868.
Our lodge is one of thousands across the United States. We gather to serve our community, support our state and national organizations and make a positive difference, both in our lives and the lives of others. The BPOE is lead by the four cardinal virtues of CHARITY, JUSTICE, BROTHERLY LOVE and FIDELITY. To be an Elk, one must be an American citizen, be at least 21 years old and believe in God.
