1. Odd Fellows Hall Marker
Inscription. Built in 1854 by the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, this hall was also shared with religious organizations of the Coloma community. The I.O.O.F. was only one of the many fraternal lodges that were active during the 1850s in Coloma and in most mining towns. Today, Coloma Lodge No.27, is the second oldest Odd Fellows lodge operating in El Dorado County. Rebekah Lodge No.114 shares in the operation of the hall for community events and weekly meetings.
