Here is a link to a photo of the State today. I hope it works.

Here is the church site. As you can see, the marquee says “On Stage”, which may have been the last incarnation before the church:

The State is still there serving as the Cornerstone Fellowship. It was purchased several years ago and converted into a dinner theatre type venue. The seats were removed and replaced by tables and chairs. It was renamed “On Stage”, probably because it was a cheap and easy way to change the marquee sign. It was available for private parties, and several popular music groups held concerts there. It was then sold to the owner of a local bar, who remodeled it once again, but never opened due to problems transferring his liquor license.

When I go by this building I always wonder what it looked like before the ugly Perma-Stone front.
