The Lyceum was originally built in 1867 as an Opera House. Circa 1898 it was remodeled by Leon H. Lempert,Sr. and demolished in 1929.

The Lyceum built in 1867 and remodeled to Leon Lempert’s design in the 1890s was completely destroyed by fire on March 6, 1904. But according to the April 9, 1904, issue of Real Estate Record and Builder’s Guide, the house was to be rebuilt:

“Fuller Claflin, 1133 Broadway. New York City, and B. C. Horn are making plans for a new Lyceum Theatre to replace the one recently burned in Elmira. Colonel D. C. Robinson is the owner of the property.”

In the quote in my previous comment, B.C. Horn should read E.C. Horn. I copied and pasted without noticing the error in the scan.
