The name of Hudson Jenkins appears above on the list of committee members that organized the first anniversary celebration of the Monticello Lodge No. 55, Knights of Pythias. There’s no year on the flyer but the Richmond Planet report below tells us that the Charlottesville chapter formed in 1903 so the celebration must have taken place in 1904.

In 1903 the Richmond Planet reported that John Mitchell, Jr., Grand Chancellor of the Knights of Pythias, visited Charlottesville and that a “Pythian club has been organized here.”

A new City Park is now under construction on that land.
