Original building built in the 1920s. A fire caused by a hurricane in 1932 gutted the building.

In 1943 a local Carrabelle resident purchased the building and opened the theater. Because Camp Gordon Johnston was nearby, business was strong at first, but the camp closed in 1946 and then the owner leased the building (as a theater?) until 1970, when he sold it and it became the Carrabelle Bank. After the bank sold the building, it became many things until a museum moved in and has begun to preserve its historical value.
