International Order of Odd Fellows Hall – Phillipsburg, Missouri 1908

scan0004This building appears to have been built in 1908 and was referred to as the Odd Fellows Hall.  I wonder how the building came to be and where the money came from.  I also wonder if the original intention was to put a store on the ground floor and a bank at the rear (right) of the first floor.  The building has gone through some transformations through the years.  It had advertising painted on the right side, and after the bank went out of business, the space was used by the ladies of Phillipsburg to work on their quilting projects.  But this appears to be the building when it was brand new in 1908.
