This block at the historic core of Carson City was the site of many business enterprises since the city's founding in 1858. The longest standing structure was the Odd Fellows Hall. Here for some 95 years the following lodges met at one time or another:

Ancient Order of Free and Accepted Masons.
Rebekahs.
Eastern Star.
Pythians.
