Biography/History"The International Order of Odd Fellows Hall sits on the northeast corner of First Avenue N. and Broadway at 521 First. It, too, is one of the earliest post-fire buildings, dating from 1894, with a third-story added in 1915-16. The Hall, originally located on the second floor provided early Fargo with much-needed meeting space. The style is Renaissance Revival, with a palladian motif over the First Avenue entrance, flanked by free-standing Corinthian columns." From Fargo's Heritage, by Norene A. Roberts. 1983.
