WF 6341.001 - I.O.O.F. Hall - 12th Street

The I.O.O.F. was founded in England in the 1600s to do good works, one of the few "safety nets" available to families in time of need. Its members were so-named because it was considered odd for men to organize and give aid to those in need. The first lodge in the U. S. formed in Baltimore in 1819. W. H. Burdon organized the Anacortes branch of the I.O.O.F. Born in England in 1844 where the I.O.O.F. originated, Burdon was a member by 1866. He and his family immigrated to Canada in 1871 and came to Washington Territory two years later; they settled first in Port Madison and then Whatcom, where Burdon worked for the Bellingham Bay Coal Company. In 1876, he and his wife Jane moved their family

Anacortes began its obsession with the automobile c 1907 when E.L. Knapp and Ben Ronneberger led the charge to establish close connections between local machine shops and livery stables with the new-fangled automobile. They converted their machine shop into a garage and established [supposedly] the first Ford dealership in the state. See 4/29/1981 ANACORTES AMERICAN. The Chevron Station at 1118 Commercial Avenue began business in the early 1950s. .001 - .002 - building the structure .003 - open for business, but more work to be completed
