History of the Lodge

In Philadelphia, before 1849, the Sovereign Grand Lodge issued the charter “California Lodge #1” and sent it to California with 6 charter members.

Due to the fever of GOLD, some of the charter members left for the hills, leaving James Smiley behind to organize a lodge in San Francisco.

After the earthquake in 1906 one member defied soldiers orders, entered the Lodge and saved the charter just before the building was dynamited as a break to stop the fire that was taking over the city.

In 1966 California Lodge #1 consolidated with Concordia Lodge #122, however in 1988 Concordia Lodge petitioned the Grand Lodge of California to restore the original charter and allow Concordia Lodge to become California Lodge #1 again.

Today California Lodge #1 is very active in their community. They made the decision to run the Lodge like a corporation with a Board of Directors, operation budgets and committee chairpeople. This growing lodge now has over 300 members.

History of the Location

First met in the Levi Stowell bldg. at Montgomery between Jackson & Washington. Later they moved to a larger hall owned by J.D. Stevenson on the east side of Kearny between Pine & California where they met until the fire of 1850. They then moved to the Gianella bldg. on the east side of Montgomery between Jackson & Washington. In 1859 the members moved yet again to larger quarters on the N.E. corner of Bush & Kearny. Finally in 1865 they had their first temple owned by the members on the west side of Montgomery St. between Pine st. & California St.

In 1884, the grand hall of the Odd Fellows was built with many meeting rooms. Grand Lodge of California, several Odd Fellows Lodges and several Grand Lodge sessions were held here until the Great Quake of 1906. This building took the entire block of the west side of Market St. between 7th & 8th.

After the quake California 1 met in many location until 1910 when the new hall at 7th & Market was rebuilt. California 1 met for years on the 6th floor, “Encampment hall” of the new building.

In 1994, after a declining membership took it’s toll on this lodge, a survey was sent to the members asking, what would get you back to Lodge, the biggest concern was the saftey of the membership coming into an undesirable downtown area, so in 1994 this Lodge and Bay City Lodge #71 moved to it’s new location.

History of the Lodge

In 1956, Napa Odd fellows Lodge sponsored the membership of Ivy Rebekah Lodge #23 which still meets at the Meadows in their rec. room. Live Oak Encampment #40 and Canton Napa #34.

History of the Location

Napa Odd Fellows Lodge #18 was instituted in Napa City in 1853 by M.W.G.M. Samual Hale Parker, the first year of the Grand Lodge of California. The first Lodge Hall of Napa Lode was dedicated on 3/7/1877. On the day of dedication all 132 members of Napa Lodge assembled on Main street and proceeded to the Lodge hall being led by the Silver Cornet Band. Following the dedication ceremony the Lodge hosted a Grand Ball with 350 in attendance.
In 1972 the Lodge sold the hall on Brown Street to make way for redevelopment.

In 1975 the Lodge purchased property on Loma Heights Rd. and met there until 1986 when they sold this property and moved to rented quarters at the V.F.W. hall.

In 1989 The Odd Fellows of California purchased a fine reirement facility on Jefferson near the Marina. Napa Lodge #18 now meets in their rec. hall.
