Odd Fellow Fence
The Friends, with a $3,800 matching grant from Watson-Brown Foundation Junior Board, repaired the broken and rusting Independent Order of Odd Fellows (I.O.O.F.) fence. The fence was installed sometime between 1843 when the Milledgeville I.O.O.F. lodge started and 1874 when a burial occurred in the lot. The I.O.O.F. fence sits upon metal blocks separated by a brick coping under the fence. The fence had lost several finials, was rusting, and was unstable due to loose fence posts. The brick coping under the fence was also crumbling. The repair was completed in Nov. 2013.
