The Olympic was located on the NE corner of 7th and Polk Streets. Many years after it burned and the rumble cleared away a new building rose there which housed the Colberts Department Store for decades. The Colberts building burned September 23, 1977 heavily damaging the building next door which had originally housed the Texas Theater. After the fire both the buildings were razed and replaced with a flat, ugly, parking lot leaving a gaping hole on Polk Street.
