I’ve also seen the Victory listed as being on First Street?

My grandfather was the builder/owner of the Victory. It was actually on the corner of Chestnut and Church. The Victory was in the northwestern corner of an entire block long building. The building occupied First to Church Streets.

In light of pgrembi’s comment, I’m now wondering if the Victory’s building might have survived the fire that destroyed the theater and still be standing. There’s a building on the north side of Chestnut extending from First to Church, and the section at its west end looks as though it could have easily housed a theater.
