Mystic Circle Club

For as long as I can remember I have loved researching my families history. You could say I am a genealogyaholic ( I just made that word up).

One evening when I was looking through a Historical Society Quarterly of Carroll County, Arkansas, where my mom is from, I found an article and an old photo of The Berryville Mystic Circle Club (above photo). The article says the circle of woman was formed in 1900 and disbanded in 1914. The members would never would say why they disbanded.

The article also says most of the woman are wearing the Mystic pin. What is this Mystic pin??

So I went on line and Googled Mystic Circle Club.

Here are my top choices,

A Mystic Circle song called Dark Passion-hmmm I think not.

A musical group called Mystic Circle/Black Metal. Creators of such heart lifting ballads as Dragon Slayer, We Swore Damnation To All Gods Creatures, and the good old standby, Medina Whore Of Satan. I am pretty sure this has nothing to do with these ladies.

Next was a Masonic Brotherhood website with the slogan, Taking good men and making them better. I am almost 100% sure this has nothing to do with these woman unless it was some sort of Masonic woman's club (while their husbands were busy -- type thing) but I think Masonic stuff is for men thus the word, brotherhood.

Well, the list went on and nothing fit. I can't imagine these woman starting a little Wicca group in the Arkansas woods but who knows.

If anyone has any idea what these woman were up to in Berryville, Arkansas please drop me a line.
