The Odd Fellows Building, now known as Walcott Galleria, at 136 S. Wolcott St. in Casper, Wyoming was built in 1952. It was designed by architect Jan Wilking of local architectural firm Goodrich and Wilking. Casper's economy was then doing well and this building, unusual for Casper, was built with an arcade of first floor shops. The Odd Fellows used the second floor, which had a double-height ballroom. There were offices on the third.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.[1]

This building is now known as the "Walcott Galleria", and home to home to a number of retail shops, as well as a banquet hall.
