The fraternal organization known as the Independent Order of Odd Fellows began in 18th Century England where it was deemed odd to find people organized for the purpose of giving aid to those in need without recognition and pursuing projects for the benefits of all mankind. Bingham Lodge #14, Independent Order of Odd Fellows (“Odd Fellows”), was established in Idaho Falls in 1886.
