Council 893's History
Council 893 was the third council to be initiated in the state of Alabama. The date of inception was April 10, 1904. The first Grand Knight of the council was Thomas Carr, who was also the Mayor of the City of Montgomery. The first council home was located in a two story house on Court Street, at what is now the overpass above Interstate 85. The council drew members from Montgomery and the surrounding cities and towns. When Interstate 85 was planned, the council home was sold to the state for the purpose of construction of the highway. The council then moved further south, to Goode Street, just behind Sidney Lanier High School. There, an addition was added to the building to accommodate various activities, such as New Years dances, parties, and conducting bingo games The council remained active at the Goode Street address until a decision was made to sell the home...
