Verner Loyal Orange Lodge No. 1
Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada
About the Lodge
Verner Loyal Orange Lodge No. 1 in Saint John, New Brunswick received its warrant in 1831.
The Lodge's Orange Hall was constructed in 1892 by prominent building contractor, George McArthur. This good example of Italianate architecture remained known as the Orange Hall for the next seventy years.
The building housed several other social and cultural organizations that also maintained strong religious affiliations. These organizations included the Church of England Institute, the Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge, the Religious Tract Society and the Saint John Oratorio Society.
In 1857, the Lodge met the first Monday of each month at the Orange Hall located on Brussells Street in Saint John.
In 1889, the Lodge met the first and third Tuesday of each month.
The Lodge continued until 1968 when it amalgamated with other city lodges.
The law firm, Gorman Nason now uses the former Orange Hall for their offices.
