Alameda in Alameda County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Alameda Lodge No. 1015
Inside the cornerstone is a brass box containing Lodge artifacts from the period the building was dedicated on May 15, 1910. Thomas Lennon, later Justice of the California Supreme Court, delivered the dedicatory oration. The members held their first regular meeting in the Lodge room the next day.
One unique feature of the building is the Tiffany glass dome in the Lodge Room on the upper floor. The dome depicts an Elk superimposed on a clock set at 11 o’clock, the time at which Elks recall and toast to their absent members.
