Rebekah I.O.O.F Home of Western Pennsylvania, Avalon, PA

Rebekah Home at Avalon is located in the beautiful suburb in Allegheny County. It was organized in 1912, and incorporated in 1914. 

The Corporation is composed of the Rebekah Lodges in the western part of the state, and the Home is managed by a Board of Directors.

The lodges pay one dollar per member as a membership fee, which allows admission to the Home of all indigent Rebekahs. It s supported also by per capita tax and voluntary contributions.

The Home is located on a large lot with beautiful Shade and fruit trees and a grape arbor. The Home has eleven rooms all nicely furnished throughout, making this an ideal little home for the indigent Rebekahs. There are at present seven old ladies at the Home. The value of Home and property is $12,000.
