History

Lady Patricia Ladies Orange Benevolent Association No. 256 was a primary (local) lodge of the women's auxiliary of the Orange Order, a Protestant fraternal organization, in North Bay, Ontario. The lodge was named in honour of Princess Patricia of Connaught, a granddaughter of Queen Victoria, and its first meeting was on March 30, 1918. Like the male lodges of the Orange Order, Ladies Orange Benevolent Association lodges had a Masonic-style structure and system of degrees, and its members took part in charitable and social activities. It is unknown when Lady Patricia Ladies Orange Benevolent Association No. 256 was disbanded, but records indicate it was active until at least the mid 1950s.
