The original wooden theater was replaced in 1813 with the impressive brick building shown here. A fire destroyed this theater in 1873, and its replacement, built in 1874, was demolished in 1917. 2nd imageAn 1845 ceremony at Bethel AME Church on Saratoga Street, honoring a white minister for his efforts on behalf of "the colored race."
