Upper Sandusky Elks was chartered in 1888 and has been a strong presence in the community for years. We continue to attract generations of family member's to our organization.

The site of the lodge is very historic as the site of Fort Ferree in the War of 1812, home of the famous springs where Charles Dickens drank from when he visited America in 1845, and we continue to be known as the "Hello Bill" Lodge.

The lodge has had (2) State Presidents with John Neate serving in 1946 and Louis "LA" Kuenzli in 1955. Joining them as State Presidents will be Mark Ratliff in 2019.

We welcome all visitors and offer plug ins for traveling Elks!
