AKA:

NOROMBEGA HALL.

STYLE:

GREEK REVIVAL.

The address does not work very well. The way I understand it, the theater faced Central Street and it’s back was to Franklin Street. Because the two streets are closest at Hamond Street, I would guess it was fairly close to that street?

Yeah,

I was basically just ball parking the address because the streets have changed a little bit. Thanks for informing on the Style.
