Women's Relief Corps raised the funds and completed this building in 1900. It was used by veterans groups, including the GAR, into the 1950's. The upper floor included a "lodge-hall, kitchen and parlor." The lower floor was rented out to provide income for maintaining the building. The upper floor has not been occupied in recent years but the current owner is interested in restoring it to its original appearance. The building is located in the Marion business district at 760 11th Street.
