Description
Refashioned from a circus building. Taken over by the Philadelphia company in 1814. Occupied for the 1820-1821 theatrical season by the acting company of the Park Theatre, while their venue was being rebuilt. Demolished shortly after their departure. The land was then purchased for Christ Episcopal Church, but research indicates that it eventually moved or closed.
