Originally built in 1888 as the Lincoln Music Hall at Ninth and D Streets, not far from Pennsylvania Avenue and the Mall, this theater later became known as the Academy of Music and later still, the Orpheum Theatre. Its last incarnation, in the 20s, was as the Strand Theatre, operated at least into the 1950s.

Today, the Caucus Room restaurant is located on the site of the theater.

The Caucus Room is part of a modern mall type building that takes up the entire 400 block of this street.
