    History: This house was built by producers M. Guignet & C. Drivet to hold French plays and comic operas. After four years, new owners renamed it and switched to a less restricted booking policy. This handsome house became home to J.H. Haverly's minstrel troupe. It had a final blaze of glory as home to Eve Le Gallienne's Civic Repertory company 1926-1932.
