GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- The Tarlton Theatre unveiled a marker Wednesday commemorating its designation as a historic place.
The Art Deco building was built around 1925. Over the years it has seen many changes.
Past names of the site include the West Pitcher Show and the Historic West Theatre.
One of the owners of the Tarlton Theatre says it's important to celebrate the plaque.
"What that plaque is going to recognize and symbolize to people is future generations can now come in and enjoy this space and celebrate it's history but also the innovation that it has for many years to come. The building is going to be here forever now." Tarl Knight said.
He also noted the theatre has plans to bolster audio and visual capabilities at the venue.
The hope is to make it more of a regional performance space to showcase more projects in the community.
The Tarlton Theatre is part of the Broadway-Walnut Historic District, which was designated on the National Register of Historic Places more than 20 years ago.
