TitleHaverly's Theatre
DescriptionFrom text: "The theatre was a surprise to every one, even in Chicago, where celerity is a prevailing habit and Time has in most things been knocked out of time. The first stone was turned upon the ground on the 12th of June, 1881. Ninety days later--on the 12th of September--the new theater, completed at every point, was thrown open to the public. If the world can offer another case in which a permanent edifice of equal size, beauty and solidity was so well and so rapidly put together, this writer has yet to learn of it." The theater was built on Monroe Street, just west of Dearborn.
