First Lutherville Colored School (Odd Fellows Hall)
Now a family residence, 1508 Bellona Ave in Lutherville housed the first Colored school circa 1877; referred to as Odd Fellows Hall. Operated by the GUOOF (Grand United Order of Odd Fellows) which was the colored counterpart of the white only I.O.O.F (Independent Order of Odd Fellows). African/American women of the GUOOF are known as the Household of Ruth. Before the Lutherville Colored School #24 was built, classes were held in the Odd Fellows Hall.
