The Residents take winter vacation To make way for city parking lot Dwc. 21 MUtw City, la. Building in Nashua razed •y MRS. ROY BANWELL 6Ww-G«Mtt» Cwr**pondn* NASHUA — A building on Main Street is to be torn down. It once housed a hotel, later a recreation hall, then a silent movie. It had rooms on the second floor for the manager's family and'extra rooms that were rented to visitors and salesmen. In its later years it housed the talking movie. It is rumored the site will be another off- street parking lot for the time being. In 1873 the building was owned >y one J. W. Patterson as a Driving hotel according to the listory of Nashua in the Brad- :ord Township, Chickasaw County. th* structut 1 * of brick was later covered with stucco. It was picturesque building standing back from the street, entirely surrounded by stately maple trees with which Main street was lined lipm the Cedar River aridge to the entrance of Oak Hill Cemetery. They had been planted by returning veterans of the Civil War. Ed Simpson, who was then in lis teens, stated that the place wasted a meeting place for teenagers of that time. Several owners' names were found in the books of the Chickasaw County Recorder at New Hampton. They owned the property during the intervening years. Jan. 24, 1910 a Mr. and Mrs. Edson Moon and their family of three sons and a daughter mrchased the building. It was cnown as the Moon Hotel, according to Mrs. Laurel Ablei- er who lived here at that time. Thty »pp«r*nify did no* operate the business very Jong as in 1911 Mrs. Sarah Phelps, and her daughter, Pearl, were the operated according to Tom Phelps, a son and brother, who lives here. Nothing was found in any of the books as to when the business was changed to a theater but, according to Mrs. Charles Shepherd, when Mr. and Mrs. Marenus Larson purchased the building it'had a movie downstairs. According to the Recorder books they purchased it Feb. 13, 1915. Mrs. Shepherd is a relative of the Larson's. They apparently operated it until 1922 as there was no other change of ownership, according to the books in the Recorders office. In 1922 a T. F. Moltz was the owner. Th* «ntry MX* in tin* w»» in April 1931 when the late Dr.. E. S. Taylor, a prominent dentist and his wife, Cora, who now lives in Fullerton, Calif., with her daughter Margaret, were the owners. Old timers recall that the late Mrs. Smith Gogg was the theater pianist. Her son Robert is a rural mail carrier here. A daughter, Mrs. C a roll Stuart, lives in Charles City. Following the. Taylors a Miss Wilma Menold, Strawberry Point, and her father operated the show for some time. Sidney Hale came to Nashua purchased the business and operated it until he died in 1951. For several months following his death the late Miss Claudia Smith, a native of Nashua, managed it for Halo's son, who lived at that time in Washington, B.C. In 1*52 th* business was soUj to Mrs. Opal Canty who had sold the Ben Franklin Variety Store to the present owners, Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Snider. In 1955 she closed the business and moved to Yakima, Wash., where her son Edward and his family lives. She is still living there and is head of the classified ad department of a Yakima newspaper. May 20, 1959 the building and contents, the movie projector and screen were purchased by the Civic Improvement League of Nashua for the sum of $2,000. Little was ever done to it except a few free movies were shown from time to time. C. H. Knight was the head of that group. It had been hoped during the past year, . that Dr. Donald Trefz would purchase the building and make way for a modern office with perhaps another dentist to come to Nashua to share it with him. However Dr. Trefz moved before school to Charles City and formed a a partenership there. with his family started last fall TO AMARILLO — Airman Daniel F.
