The Fraternal Order of Eagles Lawrence Aerie no. 21 6 was organized March 23, 1902 by District Deputy John Sheehan of Boston Aerie, no. 45.  The first meeting was at the GAR hall with 120 charter members.  By 1911 there were 1153 members and they met at 663 Essex Street.   The organization was an insurance plan for members providing sick and death benefits.  Sometime after 1911 the Lawrence Aerie built its own building at 260 Broadway.  The building still stands.
