Knights of Columbus Hall – 1919 – Ouellette Avenue

Wowsers! Take a look at this place that was located on Ouellette Avenue. In 1919 this old mansion was home to the Knights of Columbus. In 1922 ground was broken on the back half of the property for a new K of C hall, which still stands today fronting Pelissier.

In that original post, I had listed the front half as being built in 1916. Obviously now in light of that new information the part fronting Ouellette obviously came later on, replacing the mansion above. While the front part on Ouellette was listed on the fire map as the “Auditorium Building”, I have also discovered a building on Ouellette north of Wyandotte was originally called the Auditorium Building as well. Likely that was the building designed by J.C. Pennington in 1916.
