This looks like the Masonic Lodge Building, not the Odd Fellows Building. I believe it is Volcano Lodge #25 Free and Accepted Masons.
This hall is jointly owned by the Odd Fellows and the Masons. The Masons still meet here. A very cool and interesting fact about this hall is that there is a clause in the title that if either Lodge ever gives up their charter, they must pass over the title to the other Lodge. The Odd Fellow members of this Lodge have all moved to our Home in Saratoga, However, 1 day a year, they board a bus and travel to this lodge and hold a meeting, so the Lodge still has claim to their half of this building. Another cool fact on this hall is the upstairs meeting room has no electricity, so the meetings are held by Kerosene lamp, the chandalier and funriture is all original. I would encourage you to attend our meeting here, it is usually open to the public. It will be on September 19th this year. We would love to have you there.
