A quintessential example of Second Renaissance Revival architecture, the Caldwell Oddfellow Home for the Aged was built in 1920 by the fraternal organization to provide housing to the elderly and infirmed. Though no longer operated by the Oddfellows, the building is still used to provide important social services and housing to those in the most need, which is in keeping with the philanthropic intent of its original owners. Rechristened Hope’s Door, the building is now owned by Advocates Against Family Violence and provides a refuge and resources for victims of domestic violence. If you would like a peek inside, AAFV holds weekly lunches and other events to raise money for their organization.
