History of the Lodge
Sacramento Lodge #2 was instituted by DD Grand Sire James Smiley, a charter member of California Lodge #1. The institution was held in the “Red House” loacted at 5th & J St. in sacramento, the same building where the Masons met.
On January 27th 1951 the Lodge celebrated their 100th anniversary in the Silver room of the Odd Fellows temple located at 9th & K st.
This Lodge, along with Eldorado #8 and Occidental Encampment own a very nice cemetary.
History of the Location
This Lodge has had 7 homes. First meeting in the “Red House” from January 1851 – March 1851 when they relocated to the “Whitney Bldg.” located at 4th & J st.
In December 1852 the Lodge moved to the “Stanford Bldg.” located at 3rd & K st. but this bldg. was lost to fire so the members again had to move, this time to the Bennett Bldg. located on J st. between Front & 2nd st.
They moved again, date uncertain, to the St. George Bldg. at the SE corner of 4th & J st. and stayed here until their new and magnificent hall was built on the corner of 9th & K.
This hall stayed in use for the several area lodges until the changing times made it unsafe for the membership to remain. They sold this hall in 1984 and purchased a nice building where they meet to this date on Howe Ave.
