Paramount Theatre Description
In 1913, George Chaffee built a theatre called the Playhouse. The exterior of the Playhouse had a classical style reflecting the City Beautiful movement of the time, while the interior resembled a Victorian era opera house with lavish decoration. The theatre was renamed The Paramount in 1931, and its entertainment shifted from live performance to movies. The movie theater closed in 1977. In 1999, a local group began restoring the theatre to its historic appearance.
