The Upper Sandusky Elks is proudly the home of State President Mark Ratliff for the 2019-20 Lodge year joining previous Past State Presidents John Neate in 1946 and L.A. Kuenzli in 1955.

Long known as the "Hello Bill" lodge in recognition of the famous Elk greeting being painted on their wall since the early 1950's. The site of the lodge also holds other historical significance as the former site of Fort Feree in the War of 1812 as well as formally having an eternal springs that Charles Dickens drank from when he visited America in 1845.

We continue to be a driving force within our local communities by providing programs, scholarships, and grants to over 40 organizations, as well as being the social center of town. Stop by on your travels as all members and guests are welcome at the Hill!
