The structure, which was built as a hotel in 1809 and converted to a theater in 1935, occupies the site of the first building in the Thirteen Colonies designed for use as a theater. It has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1973.
The original tap room on the second floor is still maintained.
Tap room sounds so much better then ‘bar’. 😁
The Dock Street Theater, and Planters, is usually open during the day allowing access to visitors. This is a piece of history where you can wander. And…if you are from out of town there a public restrooms !!
A nice to know factoid.
