The Warwick-based Tri-City Elks Lodge #14 comprises Warwick, Providence and Pawtucket. Both Pawtucket and Providence, which had their own lodges for many years, merged with Warwick several years ago. The Pawtucket lodge was located for years in a historic site at 27 Exchange St. The three-story lodge was built in 1926 and added to the National Historic Register in 1983. The Pawtucket lodge merged with Warwick in 2006 because it was unable to meet stringent building fire codes in the wake of the tragic Station nightclub fire in 2003.
Tri-City Elks Lodge #14 has 660 members.

The Order of Elks was formally organized February 16, 1868, in the City of New York. Its full corporate name was "Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the United States of America." Its declared purposes are to practice its four cardinal virtues, Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love and Fidelity; to promote the welfare and enhance the happiness of its members; to quicken the spirit of American patriotism; and to cultivate good fellowship. The animal from which the Order took its name was chosen because a number of its attributes were deemed typical of those to be cultivated by members of the fraternity. The Elk is distinctively an American animal. It habitually lives in herds. The largest of our native quadrupeds, it is yet fleet of foot and graceful in movement. It is quick and keen of perception, and while it is usual gentle and even timorous, it is strong and valiant in defense of its own.
A representation of the majestic head of the male, with its spreading antlers, was adopted as the first badge of the Order, and is still the most conspicuous element of its copyrighted, fraternal emblem.
