Grand United Order of Odd Fellows, Lodge No. 2144 - Historical Marker
This simple two-story building was once the home of the Fort Worth chapter of the Grand United Order of Odd Fellows, which was a fraternal organization established in 1843 primarily for African-American men. The chapter built Lodge No. 2144, as it was called, in 1926 and remained here until 1937 when they disbanded. The chapter itself was founded in 1880. A number of activities took place at the lodge including seminars and professional business training sessions. The lodge was part of a vibrant African-American business district in the city. Unfortunately, more information about the chapter or the building is not readily available.
