Nine men incorporated this International Order of Odd Fellows Lodge in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles, CA, on or about 02/24/1911. Soon thereafter, in 05/1911, Glendale architect Paul Tuttle produced plans for a temple for this Watts group, but it is unclear if it was completed.

The cornerstone for this Watts IOOF Lodge was laid in 12/1926. (See "Lay Cornerstone for Odd Fellows Temple," California Eagle, 12/03/1926, p. 1.)


Morgan, Walls and Clements, Architects, supervised a remodeling of this lodge in 1933. (See Van Nuys IOOF Building Remodel, Southwest Builder and Contractor, 05/12/1933, p. 34, col. 2.) It is possible that the building sustained some damage due to the Long Beach Earthquake of 03/10/1933.
