A rich history of empowering women and communities

Founded nearly 130 years ago by nine pioneering women as a mission-driven, fraternal benefit society, hundreds of thousands of women, men, and children have worked to fulfill its mission. Since the first meeting organized by Marie Kirkland in Council Bluffs, Iowa, members have been impacting their neighbors and their communities through grassroots efforts.

You can explore this rich history in our Royal Neighbors Digital Museum. You will be able to find information about our camps, chapters, leaders, and much more. Read magazine articles from the early 1900s or learn about some of today’s grant recipients.
