It's interesting to walk through and imagine it's glory days. No guided tour, but there is an information sheet to pick up that tells you all you need to know. Great that it was refurbished and is being used! Excellent restoration.

Walked around the building which was open for browsing. Great old tin ceiling in theater which was built in 1900. If you enjoy old buildings stop by.
