Located on the northwest corner of Exchange Street (now Fifth Avenue) and Market Street (now 56th Street), Kenosha’s original Orpheum Theatre is long forgotten. It appears in photographs alongside the adjoining and far more famous original Rhode Opera House, and seems to be a frame building with a gabled roof, built at the start of the 20th century.
Charles Collins took it over in 1916 and renamed it the Blue Mill for the remaining two years of its operations, when it was demolished for the construction of the new Union Dye Works in 1918. The Union Dye Building was demolished in the 1970s and the property in 2005 is used for parking for the nearby Rhode Opera House (nee Gateway Theatre).
