Welcome to the 5th Division


Welcome to the website for the 5th Division of the Grand Commandery of  Ohio Knights Templar. We would like to thank you for taking the time and interest to visit us. We are proud of our heritage and history of Knights Templary in Ohio and in the U.S.A.  The Grand Commandery of Knights Templar of the state of Ohio began on the 14th day of March in 1818, when Mt. Vernon Commandery #1 was chartered.  We take a lot of pride having Mt. Vernon #1 in our division.  As well as, the other 4 commanderies that are represented in the 5th Division.  Clinton Commandery #5, St. Luke’s Commandery #34, Marion Commandery #36 and Columbus Commandery #69.  The composition of these five commanderies represent about a 1,000 sir knights in a state of about 10,000 knights.  A couple of our philanthropies are the Eye Foundation and the Holy Land Pilgrimage. Come on inside and navigate your way around and if you have any questions feel free to contact any one of us.
