John Ike has been visiting Brooklin, Maine since the 1970s, and The Oddfellows Hall has long captured his imagination. With his two friends, Robert Baird and Steve White, the building was restored in the summer of 2020. In keeping with the Department of Interiors guidelines, the three friends worked closely to preserve the space, a cornerstone of Brooklin. The ground floor is the home to the Brooklin Boat Yard, owned by Steve, where boatbuilders work tirelessly on their craft. The second floor is a vacation rental space owned by Robert. John restored the third floor as a vacation getaway and rental property.
