Brick Work

Our building, like much of Galesburg, features brick from the Purington brick factory. Most of our brick are original from when the theatre was built in 1916, and so they require some upkeep, to keep everything in good condition. Right now, we've got local masons hard at work tuck pointing bricks all around our building. Here they are working on our northern foundation
