Site History:

Orpheum Theater -The original building on this site was the Orpheum Theater which was opened in 1897 by Joe Petrich.  The Orpheum was the center of entertainment for the miners in town.  Stage plays, dance hall girls, ladies of the evening, and a gymnasium in the basement were just some of the offerings of the establishment.

Roberta Martin Starry states in her book DESERT BONANZA that, "According to one oldtimer, in 1899 the Orpheum Theater or Woodward's Dance Hall  was at its best.  Each night there was a brass band in front to render the opening noise; bass drums and horn, cornet and trombone."  Joe Woodward ran the Orpheum from 1899 until it burned down in the fire of 1903.

My Place Dance Hall- From 1903 until 1907, Marguerite Roberts ran a "House of Ill Repute" on or about this location called, My Place Dance Hall.  Several trade tokens from this dance hall and the Orpheum Theater have been found around the small buildings called "cribs" located directly behind the hotel. 

The "goody two shoes" types tried repeatedly to shut down this house but Marguerite was able to keep the dance hall open until her death in 1907.  Marguerite is buried in the local cemetery. 

The Commercial Hotel- The mining boom of 1922 created a demand for more hotels.  To help fill this demand, a Mrs. Artibe had the Commercial Hotel built in 1922.  The lumber for this hotel was furnished by the Johannesburg Lumber Company.
