HISTORY: The history of the Vittoria Lodge is closely related to the history of the migration of Italians from Italy to the mining camps of Polk, Dallas, Boone, Marion and Lucas counties.  The lodge traces its origin to the Court Romana No. 49 of the Order of Foresters of America which was founded March 11, 1911.  On December 1, 1913, they separated themselves from the latter order and were legally incorporated under the present name SOCIETA’ VITTORIA ITALIANA DI MUTUO SOCCORSO.
