Information for this tour was contributed by The Ruffin Theatre.
Mr. William Ruffin purchased the Ruffin's current location, from LL Lewis, in 1934. At the time the building was a movie theatre called The Palace. Mr. Ruffin remodeled the building unfortunately there was a fire, in 1936. While repairs and remodels were underway the Old Paine Opera House, on the north side of the square was used, until the Ruffin could be used.
