Albert Pike Chapter was instituted on June 30, 1921 and was granted Charter No. 58 on April 15, 1922. Albert Pike is now the oldest continuously operating Chapter in Texas, is the third largest Chapter in Texas, and is consistently listed as one of the largest Chapters in the United States. The Chapter celebrated its 80th Anniversary in 2001 with a two-day extravaganza attended by many generations of its members.

The members of Albert Pike Chapter come from all parts of the greater San Antonio area and other parts of South Texas. In recent years, our members have brought home top honors from state-wide competitions in athletics and Ritual (the memory work of the Order). Our members are also renowned for their oratorical performances at the annual Texas DeMolay Government Day in Austin, traditionally claiming several awards each year based on their public speaking skills.

There is a long and rich history associated with Albert Pike Chapter. Our traditions have been passed along by generation after generation of young men who have all benefited from their time in DeMolay and Albert Pike. For a complete written history of the Chapter, as well as complete listings of the men who have made it all happen, see the History section.
