The Odd Fellows

My grandfather was an odd fellow, both literally and figuratively and used to babysit by taking me to the local IOOF hall with him so he could play cards. Thus, I had some interest when rider two had the old Worcester Odd Fellow's Home on his list of places to see. Although on the National Register of Historic Places, it is about to be demolished so we rode up there. This is what it looks like this week.



This is what it looked like before demolition began (pic from internet):



The cornerstone for this building was layed in 1890 and it served as a senior's home for nearly a century. The replacement home is just down the hill and, looking like a Super-8 motel, was of no photographic interest. Several more closeups of the old place follow.





We will go back periodically to follow this grand old building's demolition.
