The Sons of St. George


Founded in 1871, the Sons of St. George was a fraternal order open to first, second, third generation Englishmen living in America. Its primary function was benevolence, offering sickness and death benefits to members, and social activities such as picnics and other lodge activities. There are few news items on the Skaneateles lodge, but we do know that on September 11, 1920, a group of the local lodges gathered to play cricket at the Skaneateles High School. The national order devolved into an insurance company in 1936.
