Address: 3940 Tolt Avenue, Carnation. The original Oddfellows (later Eagles) Hall, built by I.O.O.F. Lodge No. 148, has been an integral part of community life in Carnation since its construction in 1895. The two-story building has a prominent gambrel roof which terminates at the second story floor line, giving the structure a distinct barnlike appearance unusual for a social hall of this type and era. The lower roof pitches have diamond-cut patterned shingles, which were restored to the building in 1995 along with ventilated cupola and a flag pole which had been destroyed by lightening in 1914.
