The address should be 202 Second St., NW, Ortonville, MN. 56278. The Orpheum goes back at least as far as 1925.

The Lew Henderson Players played this theater, The Orpheum, for one week commencing September 30, 1928. During that week they presented the Broadway success “RAIN”. The announcement appears in the local newspaper. I don’t have an advertisement, only an article which is difficult to read. Lew Henderson was my father, and I will be 90 years old in 5 weeks. I would be so happy if the advertisement could be posted.
