Historic Profile: 404 West Broadway, constructed in 1897, is an example of an early Independent Order of Odd Fellows (I.O.O.F) hall. Begun in England as a fraternal organization dedicated to mutual assistance, the Order moved to the United States in 1819, and to what is now known as Minnesota in 1848. The Odd Fellows were a pioneering fraternal organization in terms of women’s rights, being the first national fraternity to permit female members beginning in 1851. The Odd Fellows were also pioneers in social welfare, establishing very early retirement homes and orphanages for members. For over eighty years, 404 West Broadway was the home to Hennepin Lodge No. 4 (the second lodge established in Minneapolis and the fourth lodge established in the state) and Hiawatha Rebekah Lodge #2 (the first Rebekah lodge in Minneapolis and the second in the state).
