Mishler Theatre

Historic Mishler Theatre

Built in 1906, the Mishler Theatre was once host to all the great performers of the vaudeville theater. Today it is home to many cultural events and live performances throughout the year.

The Mishler Theatre not only attracts visitors for its family entertainment but also for its ghostly spirits. The most prominent spirit is said to be that of Isaac Mishler, the founder of the theater who died in 1944. Numerous guests claim to have seen the apparition of a man, sometimes in vibrantly colored hats, wandering through the theater.
