The Palace opened around 1914 and was originally used for live theater. Mrs. Henrietta Eckardt bought the theater in 1923 and operated it until she sold it in 1956. She also owned the Wisconsin on Grand Avenue, which she sold at the same time as the Palace.

This is a 1921 Sterling Directory. You can do a search for the Palace Theater address which should be on page 12.

It looks like 114 according to the directory. Sloppy reporting by the newspaper.
