Description:
The goal is to find and photograph Odd Fellows lodges, as well as any homes, encampments, grave yards, or other affiliated locations. This could include Rebekah and Theta Rho Girls' Clubs, which are related organizations. These could be locations in other countries, too.
Expanded Description:
Examples of Odd Fellows lodge buildings, including those that are currently used for a different purpose.

According to their site, their goal is: To Improve and Elevate the Character of Man In 17th century England, it was odd to find people organized for the purpose of giving aid to those in need and of pursuing projects for the benefit of all mankind. Those who belonged to such an organization were called "Odd Fellows". Odd Fellows are also known as "The Three Link Fraternity" which stands for Friendship, Love and Truth.

The Independent Order of Odd Fellows was founded on the North American Continent in Baltimore, Maryland, on April 26, 1819 when Thomas Wildey and four members of the Order from England instituted Washington Lodge No. 1. This lodge received its charter from Manchester Unity of Odd Fellows in England.

Odd Fellowship became the 1st national fraternity to include both men and women when it adopted the beautiful Rebekah Degree on September 20, 1851. This degree is based on the teachings found in the Holy Bible, and was written by the Honorable Schuyler Colfax who was Vice President of the United States during the period 1868-1873. Odd Fellows and Rebekahs were also the first fraternal organization to establish homes for our senior members and for orphaned children.

And I just love regalia! Found this website:

Note that this is not a Masonic organization. Masons have their own category. We have noticed that a number of the buildings are three stories, without much ornate features. The three stories might be symbolic of their FLT chain of three links.

Twice built, naturally because of fires in 1917 and again in 1921, this, the second IOOF hall in Bellevue has, to date, been lucky enough to be still with us, though no longer as an IOOF Hall. It appears to be vacant at present.
