Information for this tour was contributed by Konrad Schiecke.

The Dreamland Theatre on Palm Street opened in 1910 as a silent movie house. On December 9, 1926, a fire was reported in the theatre. The fire was started when the projectionist, Clarence Denney, was changing carbons in the lamphouse and it fell to the floor and ignited film that had slipped off of the reel. On March 31, 1927, the theatre reopened with a new name, the State. It closed in the 1960s and was torn down in 1986.
