Inscription. Originally, this site housed the West House, a hotel which sometimes sheltered the guards for Johnson's Island, the Confederate officers' prison camp across Sandusky Bay.

The building was erected by William F. Seitz and his sons as a complete amusement center in 1928-1929. Movies and vaudeville were on the first floor, and a bowling alley and billiard parlor were in the basement.

Through the years, many important acts have been presented on this stage including: the Grand Ole Opry, Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, Louis Armstrong and Bill Cosby.

The auditorium has been completely restored to its original glory.
