Created on October 28, 1984, to fill
a need for a Sons of Norway lodge to serve Chicago's western suburbs, the lodge had
103 members several who had been members of the old Saga Lodge.

Many of the organizational meetings took place in the Riverside Town Hall and the lodge became known as the new "Riverside Lodge". It was only logical to select the Norwegian equivalent when it came time to select a name. Taking a few liberties with the language, "Elvesund" can be translated as "Riverside".

The lodge has established many activities which have proven popular with members. For example, card parties became an excellent way for members to become better acquainted and have been lots of fun. The lodge participates in Chicagoland's Syttende Mai and Riverside's Fourth of July parades and related activities.
