Was that building built as a rec center? It’s got some neat deco touches, although the opera house was far superior. Surprised something that big was so far out of downtown, although I assume the enormous expanse of parking lots probably used to be something more interesting.

Fifth Avenue Opera House was located at 225 East Fifth Avenue. The building was demolished and the Arkansas City recreation center was built at this address.

A quick peek at street view confirms that there is nothing like this on Fifth Ave. Demolition confirmed.

How do we know it’s demolished if we don’t know the address?
