Information for this tour was contributed by Grant Smith.

The Wadsworth Theater opened before 1930 and was renamed [1] the Dixie Theatre between 1945 and 1950. [2] The theater closed after 1999. [3]

By 2005 the building was known as the Main Street Theater and Ballroom, even though the auditorium was being used as a warehouse. The lobby housed a retail shop and office space for a radio or television station. The upper floor was used as a ballroom.
