Troop 17 History
The 1910 records of our chartered organization, the United Church of Christ, indicate that
a "Scout Patrol" was formed.
The exact nature of the group is uncertain, but a number of
organizations loosely based
on Baden-Powell’s program existed at that time and this may
have been one of them.
Troop was original chartered as Troop 69 at UCC in March of 1916
Troop was re-numbered to 17 a year later.
We are the oldest unit in old Indianhead Council’s North Star District by about nine years.
We are the oldest unit in Indianhead Council by approximately two years.
Out of 115,939 packs, troops, and crews registered in the US, Troop 17 ranks 157th in age.
