2. Union Hotel & Odd Fellows Hall Lodge #36 Building
Someone once deemed it the "tallest three-story building in creation," albeit inside it seems five stories or levels. The lodge in 1904 added a story atop the old Union House hotel. With such a name, wouldn't Union diehards opt to parade and celebrate amid torch-light here? Street-level from circa 1870 until 1919, Wells, Fargo & Co. was here. The prominent "1855" date stone only means the lodge was founded then.
