This web page from the Kalamazoo Public Library features a small photo of the Orpheum Theatre ca.1915. The caption says the theater operated from August 5, 1911, to May, 1949.

The Orpheum must have been a storefront conversion. Judging from the architectural style of the facade, the building must date from sometime between the early 1850s and the late 1870s.
