IOOF Temple

4th & D, SW corner to alley

IOOF Temple, 1904

This building was built by the local lodge of the International Order of Odd Fellows in 1901. The IOOF lodge hall was located on the second floor of the building and the first floor housed various businesses. These included the Fred Sellhorn Furniture and Undertaking business, a similar furniture business operated by Davis & McVay, and the Barker Weeder Company.

The building was damaged by fire in 1922 and replaced by a new building the following year, when it again served as an IOOF lodge. Trotters clothing store leased the building in 1925 and it later became a Coast to Coast store. The building was remodeled and became the home of the David City Bank in November 1963. The David City Bank was acquired by First National Bank of Omaha in September 1984.
