The Independent Order of Odd Fellows' building is an architectural landmark on Forest Avenue. The Odd Fellows continue to serve as outstanding stewards, maintaining the large masonry structure designed by Francis Fassett in 1897. The building has served as the Odd Fellows Hall, a Masonic Temple, Deering's City Hall, a school for neighborhood students, and a host of commercial tenants in its 120-year history. The historic building is even more impressive with the recent restoration of the clock tower. Read more about the Odd Fellows and the clock tower project in a recent Portland Press Herald Article here.
