The Yucca Theatre (National Register of Historical Places #93001447) is a significant building, representing a period of growth and development in Hysham and in Montana. During this period, electricity was introduced to the rural areas of Montana. This one advancement was highly significant, saving people time and energy, and freeing them from the drudgery of performing many chores, thus expanding their leisure time.

The theatre also reflects the impact that motion pictures made upon Americans during this era. The theatre and attached home are a historic treasure providing great insight to the life of Dave M. Manning, a state senator and builder. Finally, the theatre is an excellent example of Mission style architecture, reflecting the grandiose style and flamboyant design of movie theaters during the 1930’s.
