Lincoln Theatre
c.1973

In 1915, architect Guy Tilden designed the purpose-built Lincoln Theatre at a cost of $100,000.  It featured 1,100 seats, a concert stage, orchestra pit, box seats, and a balcony. On the upper floors and side store fronts featured department stores and doctor's offices. Over the years seats were removed and the stage altered, but it was saved from the wrecking ball by the Ten Star Theatre, who renovated the building and hosted live theater performances. In 1982, the Lions Club purchased the theatre and still own and operate it today.

Lyric Theater, c.1915

Massillon Bridge Company Baseball Team, c. 1900

In the late 1800s and early 1900s, spectator sports were popular.  In addition to amateur and semi-pro baseball teams in Massillon, there were many business-sponsored or business-run teams. The Massillon Bridge Company was formed in 1869.  It is unclear if these are employees of the company or the team was sponsored by the company.

Siegrist Silbon Troupe c. 1920

The Siegrist Silbon Troupe of aerial performers traveled with many different circuses, including Sells-Floto and Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey. The troupe often added performers along the route, and combined with other well-known acts, and lost performers to injury or performance-related death.

This photograph is one of thousands of artifacts donated by Dr. Robert Immel, who also carved the 100-square-foot miniature circus in our Immel Circus Gallery.
