"Liberty, Equality, Fraternity"

  The OSIA Little Italy Lodge #2286, in the heart of Baltimore's century-old Italian neighborhood, welcomes you to its home.      We invite you in - to immerse yourself in the old-world charm and rich cultural heritage of a thriving Italian community, to participate, no matter how far away you may be, in the timeless Italian traditions of hospitality and generosity, to find comfort and joy in discovering that, yes, family and good food and laughter can still be found in a too-often fragmented and melancholy world.    

  Explore our home, drop in often and celebrate life and family with us.
