description

Summary

Significance: The Odd Fellows Home is significant as one of the outstanding architectural landmarks of Central Ohio and as the work of two of Ohio's most prominent late 19th and early 20th century architects, J. W. Yost and F. L. Packard of Columbus, Ohio. The structure is also important as the physical manifestation of the Odd Fellow valediction "to visit the sick, relieve the distressed...and educate the orphan." ... The Daughters of Rebekah organization is due much credit for providing furnishings and equipment for the home from its inception. Plaques noting these donations are placed throughout the various buildings.
