Inscription.  This building was constructed in 1915 in conjunction with the Towne Theatre and served as the center for recreation in Fillmore. The first floor of the building included a one-lane bowling alley, four pool tables and a soda fountain. The second floor, which was damaged in the 1971 earthquake and had to be removed, once served as a dance hall for local residents. The hardwood tongue-and-groove flooring is still in place. The building still retains the copper ceiling installed when the building was initially constructed.
 
Erected by City of Fillmore.
