2. Historic Watertown Guided Tour. Maurice Hockman designed the 1910 façade. The Odd Fellow Hall occupied the older part to the north; the south part is the 1910 addition. The plumbing company in the south half has been in the Redlinger family since 1922. Kasota Stone is used for the trim and keystone. Notice the original patterned metal frames on the storefront windows. The “IOOF” in “McIntyre 1910 IOOF” near the top of the building stands for International Order of Odd Fellows.
