Date of Construction: 1891

The Independent Order of Odd Fellows Lodge, a simple two-story frame building constructed in 1891, served the Rosendale community for 89 years. It was used as a meeting hall for fraternal organizations and as a social center for the community, hosting events such as high school basketball games, plays, roller skating, and dinners.

Fraternal groups were devoted to serving their community. In Rosendale, they provided mutual relief for members, and helped the elderly and poor. This building stands as a reminder of the importance of social organizations - particularly in small towns. The Rosendale Historical Society owns the building and opened it to the public as a museum in 2014.
