Red Men Hall (Los Angeles)
The hall from Shepard Street
|Location||543 Shepard St., Los Angeles, California|
|Architectural style(s)||American Craftsman|
|Designated||April 29, 2003|
Initially built as a library in 1915, the hall is a two-story American Craftsman style structure located on a hillside overlooking the harbor in the San Pedro neighborhood. The interior contains local wood paneling and exposed ceiling beams. The City designated the hall as a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument (HCM #751) in 2003.
A local lodge of the Improved Order of Red Men, a fraternal organization which draws upon Native American inspired customs, has occupied the building for nearly all of its existence. Sequoia Tribe No. 140 remains active in their "wigwam" although the national organization has dwindled in membership.
