    Just my observation. The Movie theater was to the right of this structure. The word “Theater” is still visible on the south-side. Unless this was a later movie house.

    Brian, I grew up there, and there doesn’t seem to be a lot of history that has been recorded. I even checked with John Derden at East Georgia, and he didn’t know of any. Did you get photos of the abandoned warehouse as well?

    The structure at Norristown was actually and old movie theater.
