Previous Names: Lincoln Theatre
This one story brick building has been altered from its original 2-story height. The building has a stretcher-bond front facade with modern display windows and mansard, five-course American-bond brick side elevations with bricked up segmental-head window and door openings, and a rear brick addition.
The building was built in 1917 and opened as the Hippodrome Theatre that same year. In 1920 its two occupants were the Hippodrome Theatre and the Hippodrome Barber Shop, both African-American operated businesses. In October 1931 it was renamed Lincoln Theatre. It was closed in late-1934 or early-1935. Later in the 1930’s the building had been made into a furniture store.
