History of the Lodge

In 1862, many members of Crusade Lodge #93 were traveling from Washington Corners to Alvarado for meetings. 6 members started meeting at the Washington Hotel to discuss starting a Lodge in Washington Corners. The hall was donated by A.O. Rix (He later joined the lodge and was instrumental in starting the library and the Rebekah Lodge in the area) in 1897 Washington Corners became Irving, but this only lasted a year before the name was again changed to Irvington, in 1965 the city of Fremont was started and the street named changed from Broadway to Fremont Blvd. In 1989, the members (Forced by government standards) updated our building codes to meet the new earthquake standards and added an elevator. We are a strong active lodge in our community, but membership is small. Please contact the webmaster for information on this lodge or any active lodge in California.

History of the Location

First met in the Washington Hotel, Now Gone. In the late part of 1863, A.O. Rix (Became a member later) donated a building he owned to the members, which they later bought along with a large peice of property. This building burned in the big fire of 1895. However, as luck would have it, in 1890 they built their new meeting hall right next door in 1890, so they were not in the old building at the time of the fire. Mission peak is still meeting in their “New” hall since 1890, with only a breif period after the 1906 earthquake to repair mild brick damage after the big quake.

This lodge also owned a cemetery about 1/4 mile north on Bay street which was sold in the 1960’s. As a member of this Lodge, I am proud of our history and of our building and will continue to preserve as much as I can our old Lodge halls and their history.

  • This photo of the original Mission Peak hall was taken early 1890. The building to the right of the hall is the new Odd Fellows temple, Dedicatied in October 1890. In 1895 a fire swept through the town and this old building was destroyed, today there is nothing on this site but a parking lot and small shack that is owned by Rick & Mark Hirsh, whose grandfather, an Odd Fellow, had purchased from the Lodge for $1,500.00
