 Tower Theater. In 1947 the Tower Theater was built in Melba, Idaho. For years this small theater entertained the small town, hosting blockbuster films like “Mighty Joe Young”. In the mid 1950’s the theater had to close down due to dwindling business. In 1957, the Walter’s Butte Grange purchased the building for $7500 dollars and began holding their regular meetings, fundraisers, and community events there. In 2013, the Walter’s Butte Grange decided to close it’s charter due to a lack of membership. (Submitted on May 18, 2020, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
