History

The Loyal Orange County Lodge of Nipissing East was a county lodge of the Orange Order, a Protestant fraternal organization, with jurisdiction over Orange lodges in the present-day District of Nipissing and the District of Parry Sound. Founded at a meeting in North Bay on 25 April 1893, the County Lodge provided leadership to the district and primary lodges in its jurisdiction and reported to the Grand Lodge of Ontario West (one of the provincial lodges of the Grand Orange Lodge of Canada).

The Orange Order's County of Nipissing East incorporated the areas to the north, south, and east of Lake Nipissing which covered much of the present-day District of Nipissing and District of Parry Sound. Its boundaries extended to Eau Claire in the east, Cache Bay in the west, Spence in the south, and Redbridge in the north. Originally, the County Lodge's jurisdiction stretched even further to the east; at its founding in 1893, it included primary lodges No. 1055 (Warren), No. 1088 (Sudbury), No. 1100 (Webbwood), and No. 1283 (Copper Cliff), which were later removed to another county's jurisdiction.

The Loyal Orange County Lodge of Nipissing East contained three subordinate district lodges established in 1911: Loyal Orange District Lodge D.83 (District of North Nipissing), Loyal Orange District Lodge D. 84 (District of South Nipissing), and the Loyal Orange District Lodge of Nipissing East. These districts contained 24 primary (local) lodges, from which the County Lodge's members were drawn and which took turns hosting the semi-annual county lodge meetings. After a long decline in membership, the County Lodge was disbanded on December 15, 1997 at the decision of the Grand Orange Lodge of Ontario West.
