The I.O.O.F. Hall was built in two parts. The
first section, a one-story stone building, was
put up in the early 1850ís by Hank Hophloe, a
miner who spotted an easier way to make a living.
He ran a general mercantile which was well
patronized by the local miners, who were always
needing equipment and grub. The Odd Fellows leased
the building in 1858, at which time they added
the second floor for their meeting hall. They
eventually bought the building and it came to be
known as the Odd Fellows Building.
