Long Description:

Odd Fellows Building; 828 [826] South Main Street; 1894; contributing

This three-story brick commercial building represents the two-part commercial block building type, with an altered storefront.  The upper façade is four bays in width with replacement flat-topped window units, capped with cast iron lintels.  The cornice has been removed...

Originally housed one of Joplin’s two Independent Order of Odd Fellows lodge halls.  The 1896 Sanborn Fire Insurance Map depicts a drug store on the first floor and the lodge hall above.  Among other first-floor uses is the Coulter Drug Store, the J. C. Pence Cigar Manufacturing Company, C. G. Davison’s Restaurant (1914), the Electric Bakery (1920), and from the mid-1920s into the 1940s, a billiard parlor.   

– National Register Nomination

The building appears to be in fair to good condition and is currently vacant.
