Designed by John Eberson, the Hippodrome Theater opened in 1915. This theater started out as a vaudeville theater, switched to motion pictures later in 1915 when the first film screened was Edmund Breese in “The Walls of Jericho”. In 1948 it was remodeled and reopened September 11, 1948 as the Wabash Theater. It later became a community theater and finally returned to motion pictures. Around 1956 the Wabash Theater closed.
A year later it was acquired by the Scottish Rite. It is used as their cathedral and museum. Tours of the building are given by appointment. The building was ‘For Sale’ in November 2022.
