The Maryland opened in 1910 and was a single floor theatre located a block west of 12th Street, the main north-south street of the city. It was located in the middle of the block and surrounded by houses on each side. Truly a neighborhood theatre.

The Maryland had a small lobby but was rather decorative. Had a carpeted floor and two crystal chandeliers in the lobby. The auditorium was a contrast to its lobby in that is was rather plain, with the only decor the light fixtures on the side walls. There was no stage or a curtain that covered the screen.

The theatre closed in 1957 and became a Pentecostal church until 1964. The theatre was demolished a short time later.
