Vasa Order of America was incorporated in 1899, with this goal: To perpetuate the noble heritage of our forefathers and to foster Nordic cultural activities by encouragement and example to its members.

Today, we celebrate our Nordic culture and traditions through membership in lodges throughout the United States, Canada, and Sweden.
