Odd Fellows Home

CLay County

An impressive, significant complex of four buildings constructed between 1900 and 1908, the Odd Fellows Home sits on 36 acres. Three of the red-brick buildings exhibit the Jacobean-Revival style with rich stone door and window surrounds and gabled dormers. Nationally recognized architect, William Ittner, designed one of these structures, the Administration Building. Constructed for one of America’s largest fraternal orders, the Odd Fellows Home educated orphans and gave care for elderly members of the International Order of Odd Fellows. The buildings are in a state of advanced deterioration; broken windows, doors and damaged roofs create a dangerous environment.

Listed in 2006 and 2007.

Update: This building has been SAVED! It now functions as Belvoir Winery.
