The old Avon Theater and the restored Marshall House Hotel.

Only the facade and marquee remains of the old Avon Theater - all the former theater interior is demolished. A japanese restaurant occupies the section that once was the lobby area. I couldn't find much information about The Avon but I would guess it was built in the 1930's.

The the much older Marshall House Hotel originally opened in 1849 and become the Gilbert House Hotel in the 1940's before finally closing as a hotel in the 1950's. It was during the 1950's that the building was drastically altered and cut up into modern storefronts. The original iron balcony was removed and a smooth false front covered the windows. In the 1990's the building was restored back to it's original look and purpose with a new replicated iron balcony put in place.

"The Murder of Ellsworth," Harper's Weekly, June 15, 1861

The story of Col. Ellsworth's death for taking down a Confederate flag at the Marshall house was widely published and sparked the patriotic fervor of Northerners who claimed him as their first martyr. When the story appeared in Southern newspapers, James Jackson, the hotel's proprietor, was hailed as a victim of Northern aggression. Cries of "Remember Ellsworth!" recruited thousands for the Union and "Remember Jackson!" recruited thousands for the Confederacy. Exhibit at The Lyceum.
