Francis Sherman constructed the Odd Fellows Hall in 1912 with labor and materials donated by members of the Lodge. The building, which faces Vashon Highway, features a welcoming full-width front porch. In 1927, the lodge expanded the hall by adding single-story wings. The original, gable-roofed portion of the hall constitutes the center section of the present building. In conjunction with the women's chapter of the I.O.O.F. (Rebekah Lodge #277), the Odd Fellows hosted holiday celebrations, social events, and theatrical performances. Vashon Allied Arts now (2000) operates the building as the busy Blue Heron Art Center. A planned addition will house the collection of the Vashon-Maury Island Heritage Association. Francis Sherman had a sawmill on the island for many years.


Gravesite Details Burial was 25 Aug 1963.
