Information for this tour was contributed by Konrad Schiecke.

In 1891, the Roanoke Town Hall was built. That building was sold in 1914. It became the Roanoke Opera House. It then became the Palacette theatre with 350 seats operated by Bodhaine & Sand. In the late 30s the name was changed to the Oak theatre. It burned down October 10, 1942.
