fine building was constructed by the Hockley Loyal Orange
Lodge in 1894 and continued in use until 1972. It replaced
a log structure used as a lodge room located on the Pendelton
farm. The hall was deeded to the Hockley Senior Citizens
in 1976 and has continued to be used for special community
As told by the late Jack Brooksbank, local Hockley historian
Loyal Orange Lodge No. 465, (Hockley, Simcoe South, Mono)
was incorporated in 1891. Archival records indicate that
previous to this incorporation of the amalgamated areas,
the original Hockley Lodge warrant was issued in 1853 to
Roland Buchanan. It was situated on the Pendleton property
and the meeting house was the old log stable.
