Built and completed in 1932 as an art lodge, the building was constructed through the joint efforts of then Bacone College President, Benjamin Weeks and Mary Stone "Ataloa" Mclendon. After her death in 1967, the board of trustees renamed the building in her honor.

Ataloa's wish was that the building be filled with American Indian art and items of cultural significance so the students of Bacone would be surrounded with "things from home".

As a result of many generous donations from students, faculty, staff and friends of Bacone, the lodge houses one of the finest privately owned collections of traditional and contemporary American Indian art in the entire country. 

Everyone is welcome
