The I.O.O.F. Hall

The I.O.O.F. Hall was built in 1852 on a foundation of brick with corners of dressed rhyolite tuff. Diamond Springs Lodge No. 9 was the first lodge instituted in El Dorado county, and one of the first in the state. The Odd Fellows still use their “fine commodious hall in the two-story frame building on the hill, visible far away.” It remains in excellent condition and looks much as it did when it was first constructed, if you ignore the air conditioner.
