Odeon Hall


 
    The Odeon hall was bulit in 1901 after the Belview Dramatics Club asked the council to give consideration to building a community hall. The Odeon had a gallery extending across it's main entrance. This gallery has since been removed and the Belview Preservation Commission plans to restore it. The Belview Independent in 1903 reported "The Odeon is one of the best halls along with the Minneapolis and St. Louis Railroad, between Morton, Minnesota and Watertown, South Dakota."
     The Queen Anne style architecture is a departure from the common style for civic centers and is a main reason the Hall has been entered into the National Register of Historic Places. It has been the cultural, social, political, spiritual and civic center since 1902.
