To the editor:
The letter to the editor, Times, May 3, 2013, stated that the Orpheum Theatre was located between Fourth and Fifth streets. It should have read between Third and Fourth streets (a vacant lot next to a title company).
Many do not know what an enterprising downtown Leavenworth had when that theater was operating. For instance, there were 41 businesses and offices on the same side of the block.
To verify that statistic, go to the 1939 telephone book at the Leavenworth Public Library, if you care to.
