History of Fortitude Lodge #47 in Oldham County

Oldham County was formed in 1824, and the Grand Lodge records list Fortitude Lodge meeting at Brownsville in Oldham County for the first time in 1825.  Between 1818 and 1825 Fortitude met at several locations, even the Grand Lodge had trouble keeping up with them.  One report from the Grand Lodge states that Fortitude Lodge met at Sundry Places.  There is some evidence that we met once at Avoca O’Bannon in Jefferson County, Westport, and a location on 18 mile Church Road, which may be Brownsville in Oldham County.  The exact location has not been verified due to lost or destroyed records.
