History: The John Connalin confectionary, a one-story wood frame building, was shown at 116 S. Main Street in a historic photograph (ca. 1901). In the June, 1906 Sanborn map, a two-story brick building with a stone front (from construction plans) was recorded. The Theatorium was listed at this location in the 1907 and 1909 city directories. Later, it was a confectionary and bakery operated by Harry G. Davis. One of the second floor offices was occupied by Oscar Rice, an insurance agent, who founded the Western lnsurance Company here in 1911. A racket store at this location was recorded in the July 1912 Sanborn map.

Integrity: The building retains sufficient architectural integrity to be listed as a contributing resource."
