This two-story, Italianate Victorian building has outside walls that are sixteen inches thick and partition walls that are twelve inches thick. The second floor with its twenty foot ceiling was used for lodge functions by th International Order of Oddfellows. The commercial first floor produced rental income for the lodge.
The Independent Order of Odd Fellows (I.O.O.F.) is an altruistic fraternal organization derived from the similar English Oddfellows service organizations which came into being during the 1700s....Although in Britain the Odd Fellows tended to meet in pubs, in the U.S. the lodges often built their own facilities. Many of these are now on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places....
