1. The American Theater Marker
Inscription. Originally built as a Vaudeville house, the American Theater hosted its premier performance on Christmas Day 1909. With the advent of film, the American was converted to a movie theater in 1918. A major fire destroyed the structure on May 24, 1950 but it was rebuilt and re-opened in 1951. The American was the last of the local movie theaters to close. It was demolished in 1999.
