Balmain, Oddfellows Hall

The former Oddfellows Hall and shop is located on the corner of Darling Street and Jane Street, in the inner west suburb of Balmain. It was built in 1864 for the the Loyal Balmain Lodge of the Manchester Unity Independent Order of Odd Fellows, a friendly society who owned and used the building from its construction until 1975. It now houses a hairdresser.

  2. Interesting architecture. I know we have branches of that here, though I can't recall locations off hand.

  3. Cool, my hairdresser is in that building! There's also an Oddfellows hall further down Darling Street, near the wharf.

  6. I'd heard of Odd Fellows before. Not sure exactly what they are, but I believe I may have married one.
