In the summer of 1969, Robert Indiana visited photographer Eliot Elisofon on Vinalhaven and was inspired by the Odd Fellows lodge, which was vacant at the time. Elisofon purchased the building and Indiana rented the top floor each fall for the next nine years to use as his studio. Indiana purchased the building from Elisofon in 1976.
