Read all about it

The Odd Fellows Building in Casper was completed in 1952 and is an important component of the post-World War II building boom in downtown Casper. At that time the city was developing into a major commercial center in the area. Designed by prominent local firm Goodrich & Wilking, the building is representative of the restrained version of the Modern style of architecture that was becoming increasingly common in Casper in the 1950s. Construction of the building also signaled a renewed interest in fraternal lodges. During the 1950s numerous fraternal organizations built new or expanded their existing lodges. The building was used by the Odd Fellows for over fifty years until 2007 when the lodge disbanded.
