So what is an “Ante Room”? It is the small waiting room that serves as a buffer between the Odd Fellows Lodge Room and the more public spaces in the building. Often they are fully enclosed with no windows to create an intimate cozy space of personal reflection before gaining entry into the larger wide open Lodge Room where members can mentally shed the woes of their daily lives before donning their ritual regalia. The door featured in the opening was shot in the Ante Room of Tuscola #316 in Tuscola, IL
