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.

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 recently celebrated their 125th Anniversary

New Albany Elks Lodge Founded in 1893

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.

What We Do


Elks Lodge 270 is proud of its members.  Last year we raised over $80,000 for local charities.  

Helping Those in Need

Elks Lodge 270 helps those in need. We’ve extended our assistance in monetary gifts, time given by our members as well as fundraising efforts to many local charities who help those who are less fortunate.


We are deeply involved in our community and making it a better place for all who live here.  We support Develop New Albany, our Police Department, Parks and Recreation department, ROTC, Little League and others each year.  

Have Fun

Our members enjoy the good company of other members – no matter if we are at work or play within the lodge.  

Golf, holiday parties, Friday night dinners, bingo are just a few of the items on the “fun-to-do list.”   See the full Calendar of Events for more details.

The COVID-19 pandemic has claimed another victim. For the first time in the 31-year history of our Lodge major project, Clothe-a-Child, has been cancelled. There will be no shopping this year. However, we have no plans to abandon the 158 kids that were signed up to shop for clothes. The Lodge members present at the last meeting agreed we should purchase gift cards and distribute to those kids. It was decided to purchase cards valued at $120 for each child. The committee recommended Kohl’s for their selection and their location. The cards will be distributed by the school system and in time for Christmas. The spirit of New Albany Elks Clothe-a-Child lives on! It’s Good to be an ELK!! ... See MoreSee Less
