In 2013, 230 South Main Street was selected by the Theatre department at Monmouth College to be the home of their future productions. The department had been on the search for more space for their productions since as early 2006. An off-campus location had to be found because there wasnt adequate space on Monmouth Colleges campus. The location was bought in the summer of 2013 from Roy Shaw Jr. Ownership now lies with Frantz-Hobart Community Investors, LLC.- a real estate company based out of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Carpenters and crews of Monmouth College helped reconstruct the building into the theater it is today.
