History

The word Harugari comes from the old German word Haruc which means "holy shrine; a meeting place under oak trees." Harugari is an ancient Teutonic name for priest. The  Deutscher Orden der Harugari was founded on March 8, 1847 in New York City. By 1887, there were at least 250 sub-orders throughout the U.S., established to provide services for members in need. Additionallly the lodges sought to preserve the German language in the US and to give German-speaking citizens an opportunity to promote their own culture and tradition.
