A model of this room was once displayed in the visitors center. This room is also known a Odd Fellows Hall because of the three solution pockets in the ceiling that look like the interlocking rings of the Odd Fellows. The room was originally discovered by Alvin McDonald, Willie Crookam, M.E. Crookam, and George Lee on July 3, 1891
