The Key West Lodge of the Knights of Pythias built this African American fraternal meeting hall with retail space for lease on the ground floor and an auditorium on the second floor.  The building is red brick with dark red brick trim.  The lodge closed around 1947 and the building was leased to several businesses from that time until the 1980's. The building has been restored for use as apartments.  An adjacent building was constructed to add to the total number of units on the site. That project was completed in 2014 and provides 10 units in the original building and 8 units in the new one. The two buildings are connected by an open staircase and deck covered by a wood trellis.
