The following history is from Fidelity Lodge No. 113 F. & A.M. The First Hundred Years 1871 to 1971, which was published (as the title suggests) for our lodge's 100th anniversary in 1971. The pamphlet measures 4 1/2 by 6 1/2 inches and is 36 pages. To make it easier to follow, at the bottom of each page is a link to the next page in the history, and also links to all pages in the history. As noted in the introduction, would not have been possible without the dedication of WB David Roman, and RW Everett Labagh.
