About Us

Our local lodge, Drott Lodge No. 168, was chartered on February 18th, 1910 in Washington, D.C. and is one of four local lodges governed by District Lodge No. 9 Pennsylvania. Today, Drott Lodge maintains a multi-generational roll of 200-plus members from the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia. The Lodge meets most 2nd Sundays of the month at St. James' Episcopal Church in Potomac, Maryland. Most meetings include a regular business meeting followed by a cultural presentation by a visiting speaker or a member of the lodge. The Lodge is well known throughout the greater Washington metropolitan area for its annual Swedish Bazaar held the first Saturday in November.
