About Us

Our local lodge, Drott Lodge No. 168, was chartered on February 18th, 1910 in Washington, D.C. and is one of four local lodges governed by District Lodge No. 9 Pennsylvania. Today, Drott Lodge maintains a multi-generational roll of 200-plus members from the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia. The Lodge meets most 2nd Sundays of the month at St. James' Episcopal Church in Potomac, Maryland. Most meetings include a regular business meeting followed by a cultural presentation by a visiting speaker or a member of the lodge. The Lodge is well known throughout the greater Washington metropolitan area for its annual Swedish Bazaar held the first Saturday in November.

See our About Us page for more information about Drott Lodge and Vasa Order of America.
