King Oscar Lodge was chartered in 1898 and given the name of the then King of Sweden and Norway, Oscar II. Since then, King Oscar has always been a place "where true Masonic brotherhood flourishes."

"Freemasonry is an organized society of men symbolically applying the principles of operative masonry and architecture to the science and art of character building. Its purpose is to improve the community through the improvement and strengthening of the character of the individual man."
