Aaron Lodge #4 is in the original Lodge building for Scotland Arkansas. Originally the building was shared by the Freemasons and Odd Fellows with the Freemason Lodge meeting in the upstairs.
The Odd Fellows Lodge dissolved but was still owned by the Odd Fellows. After the lodge dissolved and the Freemasons built their own individual lodge building the Odd Fellows lent the building out for use by the local Methodist church.
In 2005 Aaron Lodge was started in Leslie Arkansas. The meetings were originally held in the upper level of a locally owned pharmacy. Once the pharmacy closed its doors for good they had to pursue a new building. They found that the original lodge building in Scotland was still owned by the IOOF and found that the Methodist church was no longer using it.
In 2008 Aaron Lodge was moved to Scotland back to the original lodge building. Meetings have consistently been held there ever since. In 2017 the lodge started the project to convert the upper story of the lodge building into a temporary shelter for people in need due to the loss of their home because of natural disaster or fire. There are 6 rooms in total with 2 beds in each room. There is a full bath and a small kitchen with an eating space. this temporary shelter is registered through the state and is available to anyone who may need it. It also contains small personal care items such as toothbrushes/paste, deodorant, etc...
