History of Olive Branch Lodge No. 74 F. & A.M.

The Olive Branch Lodge No. 74 began August 24, 1904, with George Brinker as the first Worshipful Master. From 1904 to 1916, the group met in Armordale, Kansas; they then moved to the 10th and Washington Blvd. location. Olive Branch was one of the first lodges in the area to own their own hall, to organize a school for Masonic instruction, and to recognize meritorious service for master masons.
