Built as hospital barracks during the Civil War, this frame building on Fisk University’s campus has been used as a theater since 1935. As a continually used 160-year-old wood building, it’s showing its age. Windows and gutters need repair or replacement and moisture issues must be addressed so that this unique building may be preserved. Fisk and preservationists have worked well together over the years. The time is right for all concerned to turn their attention to the theater.
The theater was placed on the 2022 Endangered Local Historic Properties List.
