1. The Odd Fellows Building Marker
Inscription.  Built in 1889 by the local firm A. Feick & Bro. (now Feick Contractors), this fine example of late Victorian/ Italianate architecture was one of only three built especially by the International Order of Odd Fellows for their lodge activities. During World Wars I & II the lodge hall was shared by several fraternal organizations of the era. The building has housed numerous 1st & 2nd floor businesses over the years, while the 3rd floor has remained a lodge hall. It was last purchased in 1989 and placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.

In the early 1990's, under the current owners James and Mary Ellen Hart, the building underwent a major renovation where emphasis was placed on preserving the fine craftsmanship and level of detail associated with the original Feick design.
 
Erected by Sansusky Main Street Association.
