Elks invest in their communities through programs that help children grow up healthy and drug-free, by undertaking projects that address unmet need, and by honoring the service and sacrifice of our veterans.
New Albany Elks over 125 Years
The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks has a long and proud tradition in New Albany. Our lodge was chartered in 1893 and moved to our present location in 1902. The order itself was formed in 1868.
Our lodge is one of thousands across the United States. We gather to serve our community, support our state and national organizations and make a positive difference, both in our lives and the lives of others. The BPOE is lead by the four cardinal virtues of CHARITY, JUSTICE, BROTHERLY LOVE and FIDELITY. To be an Elk, one must be an American citizen, be at least 21 years old and believe in God.
New Albany Elks Lodge 270 is located in the heart of Downtown New Albany, Indiana at 426 Pearl Street.
Elks Lodges bring so much more to their communities than just a building, golf course or pool. They are places where neighbors come together, families share meals, and children grow up.
