The status needs to be changed to demolished. It was torn down for the casino. :–(

The NRHP registration form for the Edisonia Theatre Block says that it was built in 1913 and designed by local architects E.C. & G.C. Gardner. The building was added to the NRHP in 1983.

The Garden closed in 1953. In 1954, the then popular downtown grocer, Springfield Market, took it over, gutted the theater and it became a grocery store until the mid ‘60’s.
