This Day in Dayton, 15 February

The Knights of Pythias, Sheffield Castle No. 414, was organized February 14, 1895, with 26 charter members. Meetings were held on the 3rd floor of the Dayton House (Hatton), probably the old hotel at the northwest corner of Walnut and Conjunction. Later, they met on the second floor of the drug store built by Fred Widmer, the building now housing Ken and Rita Taylor’s American Restoration business. The building says "Castle Hall" on the upper story.
