The mission of the Danish Sisterhood of America is to strengthen, maintain and preserve the Danish heritage and traditions for future generations.
Who We Are
The Danish Sisterhood of America was founded on December 15, 1883 by Christine Hemmingsen, a Danish immigrant from Orup, Denmark. Inspired by the success of the Danish Brotherhood of America, Mrs. Hemmingsen established Christine Lodge #1 in Negaunee, Michigan. The Danish Sisterhood of today continues to grow with numerous lodges located throughout the United States and Canada.
Dronning Margrethe Lodge #15, Milwaukee, WI, Organized September 21, 1891
The Danish culture is rich – its history long and distinguished, going back thousands of years. Membership in the Danish Sisterhood of America is a wonderful opportunity to connect with your Danish heritage, learn more about Danish customs and traditions, and strengthen your connection to Denmark. A cordial invitation is extended to you to join the largest national organization of Danish women and men dedicated to preserving and sharing these deeply rooted traditions.
