Tucked away on the Ave between the University of Washington Book Store and Bartell Drugs is a 1909 brick building constructed to house University Lodge #141, a local chapter of the world’s oldest fraternity. Lodge members will guide a tour of the building, and mural expert Roger van Oosten will speak about Ernest Norling, the famous WPA artist whose work adorns all four walls of the lodge room.
