History of the Order
The Order of Knights of Pythias is a great international fraternity which
was founded in Washington, DC, February 19, 1864, by Justus H. Rathbone,
and embraces more than two thousand subordinate lodges in the United
States and Canada, with occasional lodges having been formed elsewhere.
The primary object of fraternal organizations is to promote friendship
among men and to relieve suffering. Each organization adopts some
outstanding principle as its objective. The individuality of an order is
determined by its ideal sentiment. The distinguishing principles of the
Order of Knights of Pythias are "FRIENDSHIP, CHARITY and BENEVOLENCE".

The members of the Fraternal
Order Knights of Pythias are deeply involved in their communities
throughout the United States and Canada.
Their social and charitable activities are directed towards enhancing the
great principles of the Order - FRIENDSHIP, CHARITY, and BENEVOLENCE.
These principles are adhered to very strongly through contributions of
money, time, efforts and supplies to Pythians and non-Pythians alike.
The eventual aim and goal is the betterment of mankind.
For several years the United Cerebral Palsy Association was the primary
charity of the Pythian Order - both nationally and locally. Several
hundreds of thousands of dollars were raised for the cause, and many
Pythians still devote much time and energy on behalf of Cerebral Palsy.
