The Belvedere Lodge No. 326 was part of the Knights of Pythias, an international non-sectarian fraternal order dedicated to achieving “peace through understanding” throughout the world. It was founded in 1864, the first fraternal order to be chartered by an act of Congress. There are still Knights of Pythias lodges in Los Angeles, but No. 326 no longer exists.
