607 Main

607 Main

The Knights of Pythias Hall was badly twisted and now has a decided lean to the west, so much so that it was deemed advisable to shore it up to prevent its falling.

607 Main/Pythian Hall was repaired and rebuilt by the Pythians and continued serving as a commercial building with rooms and hall upstairs. Immediately after the earthquake, Duck Brothers furniture company moved out of the Pythian Building to that across the street. Hence the Duck Bros. wagon with the child at the reins awaiting another load.

This onion-domed delight was demolished in 1926 for a automobile garage which now houses the Ferndale Pizza Company.
