The Knights of Pythias Hall was home to one of the Comstock's once-numerous fraternal organizations. It is a two-story brick building with square iron supports on the first floor and brick pilasters decorating the second story. The windows on the second story have graceful round arches. Protruding beams indicate where a metal cornice once decorated the roofline. The arched parapet bears the letters “K of P” in relief, commemorating the building's original use.
