'Red Men' selling longtime lodge in Hampden
In 1893, a group of Baltimore patriots joined the Improved Order of Red Men and began meeting in Hampden Hall on what is now The Avenue. Adopting the democratic ideals, customs and costumes of American Indians, as well as the Red Men motto, "Freedom, Friendship and Charity," they were chartered as Tecumseh Tribe No. 108 of the national fraternal organization.
