The Royal Order of Scotland first came to the United States from Scotland in 1877, with Scottish Rite Grand Commander Albert Pike as the first Provincial Grand Master. Speaking of the Royal Order of Scotland, Albert Pike wrote,
“We have desired to create an association of worthy Masons and gentlemen. . . to assemble annually, not for dry discussions or for display, but for social intercourse and festive enjoyment.”
In July, 2019, the Provincial Grand Lodge chose to break from tradition of holding the Degrees in a hotel, and decided to hold them in the Valley of Omaha Scottish Rite theater. Over 80 candidates joined from across the United States, including 34 from Nebraska, receiving the Heredom of Kilwinning and Knight of the Rosy Cross of the Royal Order Degrees on July 20, 2019.
The goal of this page is to create the “social intercourse and festive enjoyment” Pike wrote about with annual events for Royal Order of Scotland members.
