In the 1800s the area had some of the richest men in the world living here.... in fact the city is filled with old mansions...
All these old Mansions used to be owned by lumber tycoons that particular theater was built in memory of one of these tycoon's daughter Mabel who died at the age of 19...
In fact Chicago owes alot to the area because of the famous Chicago fire in the 1800s and much of the city needed to be rebuilt.. So they bought lumber from here and they floated it all down the Mississippi river.... They built us we built them... interesting huh?
On a related note laura ingalls wilder lived about an hour away... she wrote the book little house on the prairie decades before the lumber boom and some time after the fur trade....
