Inscription.  The Hayloft Theatre Barn was constructed in 1902. From 1919 into the 1940s, the barn was part of a working farm owned by the Solomon Schiedel Family. The barn was purchased in the 1940s and developed into the Hayloft Theatre by Mary and Vern Meyers. The theatre closed in 1952. In 1992, the Hayloft Theatre was relocated from its original site on East Milham Avenue to the Celery Flats Historical Area premiering the first new performance in forty years on August 6. The Hayloft Theatre is owned and operated by the City of Portage.
