Notes
Survey number HABS IA-161
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N497).
Significance: This two-story, brick commercial building possesses both architectural and historical significance. Like most structures of this type erected in 1881, this edifice shows the influence of the Italianate style, which is reflected in its pressed tin cornice with brackets, wall surface treatments, the hood moulds over the windows. Late in the 1880's the meeting hall was converted into a theater known as Daniels Opera House. From that date until sometime after the turn-of-the-century, the "opera house" flourished and to date, is the only known "opera house" facility operating in Marion.
