Update for Wednesday, June 9th, 2021

I have continued to update the indoor theater section but today I added a page on Dance Pavilions and Ballrooms. The first one featured is the Avalon Ballroom in Niles on Barron Lake. Over time I will add many more. I had covered these indirectly in the Amusement Park section but I feel it is important to feature these directly as many existed outside the confines of an amusement park.

Update for Friday, June 4th, 2021

I have been updating the site daily for the last several weeks, adding new information and photos. This has mostly been in the theater sections. It has been fun so I will keep that up. I have some road trips planned to gather even more content. I am obsessed with these small towns which had theaters back in the early 1900's. It is fun doing the detective work to figure out where they were and if the buildings still exist. Look for more of that and some other ideas for content I have coming up.
