JOSEPH HARTMAN & SONS purchased most of the land including the Grandview Theatre property from the IVANHOE CO. Your theory is correct as the McKinley Construction Company built many commercial structures including this one.

I have no agenda so I am not trying to mislead anyone. The Grandview Theatre was owned by the Goodman Company who also purchased the Evergreen Theatre with the intention of operating a chain of theatres. Yes Louis Berger played a key role in the building of Ridgewood. Ridgewood had its share of scoundrels and underhanded dealers as many other communties had. I will convey your thoughts to Sally and perhaps I can persuade her to return here to help in your endeavors.
