"Arminius Lodge was founded in 1876 under the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons (F:.A:.A:.M:.) of the District of Columbia. The nineteenth century saw a thriving German immigrant community in Washington, D.C., and German-language newspapers such as the Washington Journal, churches such as the Vereinigte Kirche, and fraternities such as Arminius Lodge were founded to serve the interests of this community and provide continuity of culture and language from the Old World into the Nation’s Capital. During its 137-year history, Arminius Lodge has had a unique dual-mission: the promotion of Masonic ritual, philanthropy, and philosophy in the German language as well as the fostering of German culture and language more generally."
