The historic 1885 Odd Fellows Hall in Hayesville is located just down the street from the Vermillion Institute at 7 E. Main St. This two-story Italianate style brick building is in the planning and early construction stage in its conversion to loft-style apartments. The building began its existence as a social meeting space above a hardware store. The upper floor has been abandoned for close to 100 years and the lower floor has been empty for a decade.


The building is distinguished by its 14-foot ceilings and slender 9 1/2 foot tall windows, complete with robust trim and interior wood shutters. Unusual features include a hidden entrance to the basement, two trap doors and a primitive dumbwaiter system. The building is notable for its highly ornamented metal cornice with gothic accents, its Corinthian storefront columns and elegant display windows.

Note: As plans move forward with the conversion please check back for additional information and renderings to be added to this page.
