435 to 439 High Street was a block called the O’Neil Block. It is where the Cuban Market is now and is a good starting point. This was a three story building. This was the Red Men’s Hall for the Improved Order of the Red Men. In 1900, there were a multitude of other fraternal groups that used this building. One such group was the Catholic Order of the Foresters.
