Previous Names: Lyric Theatre
The late-Victorian brick building shell that once housed the Lyric Theatre still stands on the southwest corner of Rockwood Street and Chamberlain Avenue. The date 1893 is on the building. The Lyric Theatre was listed as (Closed) in 1936. It reopened as the Ritz Theatre and closed in 1953. At some point, the building was gutted and remodled into a J.C. Penny store. The Penny’s burned about 1970, but Penny’s rebuilt - further erasing any trace of the theatre. A new, flat, concrete slab floor was installed and a new steel bar-joist roof structure built. As of 2015 the building has been stripped to bare structure and is being rebuilt into a history museum.
