The Vasa Order of America began more than a century ago as a benefit fraternal
society for Swedish immigrants to the United States. Membership at the time was
limited to Swedish born men who through the Vasa Order met others who needed
to learn the new language and ways of the new country. The Order is named for
Gustav Vasa, who liberated the country in the 16th century and became the first King
of modern Sweden. The name of Vasa reflects the Order's roots as a Swedish
American Fraternal Organization.

Swedish in origin, the Vasa Order welcomes men and women over 14 years of age
of Scandinavian roots, (Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish or Icelandic,) and
their spouses. Vasa allows members to rediscover the traditions of their forefathers;
and those who are not of Nordic ancestry but are committed to the promotion and
advancement of Swedish and Nordic heritage and culture.

There are nearly 300 lodges in the Vasa Order, governed by 19 District lodges in the
United States, Sweden and Canada.
