The Independent Order of Odd Fellows Hall in Salt Lake City, Utah, also known as the I.O.O.F. Hall, was built in 1891 at a cost of $40,000.00. It was designed by George F. Costersian in Richardsonian Romanesque style.[1]

The building served historically as a meeting hall[1] for the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. It is one of the few remaining examples of a large number of Richardsonian Romanesque commercial buildings erected in Salt Lake City during an 1889–1893 building boom.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.[1]

In 2009, it was moved to make way to the new Court House. This work was performed by Layton Construction Company, Inc. as General Contractor and Emmert International as specialty transport contractor.

The building mass was approximately 5 million pounds of stone and brick at the time it was moved.

In 2011 the building was purchased by a private party and the interior rehabilitated including extensive seismic upgrades and new HVAC and plumbing systems and all new interiors. Today the entire building is occupied by Dennis Group, an engineering and construction company that services the food processing industry.
