Eisenbarth-Henderson Showboat

Eisenbarth-Henderson Showboat

 

Ellsworth Eugene Eisenbarth was born October 22, 1864, in Ironton, Ohio. The family later moved to Wetzel County, West Virginia. By 1889, Eisenbarth was traveling the mid-Atlantic states in “The Oregon Indian Medicine Show,” which featured such entertainment as real cowboys and “Indians.” He next bought a floating store, which he refitted as a showboat and christened “The Eisenbarth Wild West & Floating Opera.” The endeavor lasted from 1891 to 1895. By the late 1890s, Eisenbarth and his wife Julia had founded “The Eisenbarth & Henderson Mammoth and Combined Uncle Tom’s Cabin Company,” complete with calliope, band and orchestra, which also traveled throughout the middle states by rail. In February of 1900, E.E. and Julia converted a glass barge named the E.V. Poke No. 2 into “The Eisenbarth-Henderson Floating Theatre, Temple of Amusement.” This showboat and its successor (“The Eisenbarth-Henderson Floating Theatre-The New Great Modern Temple of Amusement”) were devoted to bringing Shakespearean plays and other dramas, such as “Human Hearts” to the waterways. Eisenbarth also worked with a traveling company of players, perhaps to remain off the rivers during the winter months. The Temple cleared more money than almost any other boat on the Ohio River, even though it only played four nights a week and never on Sunday. Julia Eisenbarth died sometime after, and E.E. remarried in 1908 to Jennie Salina Brown. In 1909, he presented his last show on a riverboat, “The Castle.” He sold The Temple showboat to the Needham-Steiner Amusement Company that year, and although he made bids on other boats, these proved unsuccessful and The Temple ended up being his last showboat.

On the eve of Christmas holidays comes announcement that the largest building in the heart of the business district the past 75 years may be a ghost but with one or two tenants left after the New Year bells ring. Senior citizens remember the many business occupants of the building, the lodges, the lawyers, and the young folks, proud of their town, want to see all the display windows decorated and lit up about the city.

First of all, the impending vacancy recalls an old respected Ironton family name, prominent in the city since 1871, when Frank E. Hayward came to town and engaged in the grocery business on the corner at Third and Center. During his successful years, he and associates organized the Ironton Fire Brick Co., an industry that has meant much to the economy of the community since 1883.

My first memory of the Hayward building dates back to the Gay 90’s. It was at Ball Brothers drug store in that building where I first tasted the cool refreshing summer drink advertised as soda water. Klein’s Soda Shop has now occupied a room in the building the past 60 years. As I recall, as a school kid, it was Hayward & Murdock, wholesale groceries in the corner room, now the Leggett display windows.

The adjoining room on Third was Frank Castner’s china, notion and toy store and the Nixon harness shop with a long hitching rail in the front at the curb for horses. That room is now Klein’s restaurant.

As the business changes took place, it was Hurtz Underselling Store in the corner room in 1904.

H.S. Knox, the first 5 and 10 cent chain store on the city in 1906, which later changed name to F.W. Woolworth until the Leggett store took over. Other first floor businesses included Clay Henry & Son (Walter) Jewelers; J.J. Hasenauer, wallpaper; Murdock Art Store, Von Shoe store, Ted Allyn, Jewelry.

The lodges were, Myrtle Lodge, Knight of Pythias; Modern Woodmen of the World and Independent order of Red Men. Dick Lambert Post, Grand Army of the Republic, met in the third floor drill hall.

On the night of December 6, 1883 when plans were adopted to build the Memorial Hall, 347 veterans attended the meeting causing alarm because of the crowd with no fire escapes on the building and all wood steps inside. That floor then was the National Guard Armory. The military unit was known as the Kirker Rifles. Later, Uniformed Rank, K. of P. drilled in the hall, and the Red Man’s marching band practiced there.

Among young lawyers who started practice with their first office in the building were Hon. John J. Richards, who became U.S. Attorney General; Congressman Tom JenkinsHomer M. Richards, Sr., W. Dustin Corn, John Yates and Edward Belcher.

The Davidson Business College and the Lawrence Telephone Exchange were a part of the third floor. Dentist’s offices in the building included Dr. Fred W. BrammerDr. Harry R. Smith, who was the first Ironton soldier to parade in Paris in 1917. A prominent newspaperman, Col. Robert Walker who took a leading part in all veteran parades, occupied a bachelor apartment in the building.

I hope I am not going back to far when I write about the $600,000 racetrack at Chinnville just across the river from Hanging Rock. No doubt there are at least 5,000 folks who will read this newspaper today, who were there 42 years ago, when a Kentucky Derby winner named Black Gold sent ten thousand people away from the Raceland track broke as a dark horse, named Bob Tail, won and the favorite did not show in the final result.

The new bridge to Russell opened in 1922 and E. B. Adams remembers, after the races, autos were bumper to bumper on the Kentucky highway for a distance of three miles to Second and Adams Street in this city. The new racetrack opened July 10, 1924. After four seasons the track closed in 1928, over $200,000 in debt. The owner was Jack Keene of Louisville. Everybody except those who never made a bet were losers.

The grandstand was just about twice the size as the Tank Memorial Stadium at Beechwood Park. The C&O ran a daily  ten-coach train from Huntington. The Ironton Russell Bridge paid a ten per cent dividend while the track lasted.

Col. John Daugherty of the Ventura Hotel of Ashland came over and leased the new hotel Marting, which was crowded with racehorse men. “Old Ben” and other horse touts came to town to sell printed tips and Ironton merchants complained that folks whom they saw at the track betting windows, were not paying their bills. I’m not sure, but I think the Ironton Merchants Credit Bureau organized that year.

It is easy to recall a couple of the horses that were “also rans” in every race until the final week when they ere allowed to become long shots and paid $130 on a $2 ticket. The names were “Miss Murdock” and “Miss America”. I am sure that I could call 50 names and all could tell me a good story about Raceland, but the first I asked on Center Street the other day, Attorney James Waldo, said he to young to remember only hearsay. Phil Sheridan perhaps remembers the odds on Malcomb B. in 1926 Raceland Derby.

Memorial Hall – Ironton

Grand Army of the Republic Memorial Hall

Ironton, Ohio

__________________________________________

Unused-Pre-1980-BUILDING-Ironton-Ohio-OH-hn7452

The Grand Army of the Republic Memorial Hall, built in 1892, is an historic building located at 401 Railroad Street in Ironton, Ohio. Designed by noted Ohio architect Joseph W. Yost in the Richardsonian Romanesque style of architecture, it was built to serve as a Grand Army of the Republic memorial and the meeting hall of Dick Lambert Post No. 165 of the GAR.

It later served as the meeting hall of the now long-defunct American Legion Post No. 59 as well as the Ironton city hall. After being abandoned by the city, American Legion Post No. 433 undertook the task of restoring the long neglected veteran’s memorial. On September 19, 2012, the building was added to the National Register of Historic Places. On May 28, 2014, demolition of the building began.

 

Click Here for a YouTube video of the Memorial Hall building in 2010, prior to demolition.

Memorial Hall, designed by Yost and Packard Architectural firm of Columbus, was constructed for $20,000 to honor Civil War veterans. It was dedicated on September 22, 1892 1 to the Grand Army of the Republic, the Women’s Relief Corps, American Expeditionary Forces and the Spanish-American War soldiers. The original deed from 1889 stated that the building could be used only for Union soldiers, their widows and orphans, and that it would contain a library and be a place for “relics of a patriotic nature.”

In 1905, a fire burned most of the structure that left only the front stone facade and tower, taking with it the Briggs Public Library. The building was soon rebuilt and used solely as a library. Memorial Hall also suffered from the Ohio River floods of 1913 and 1933 but no major damage was reported.

After the library moved out in the 1960’s, Memorial Hall was reused as the Ironton city jail and city hall until 1996. A deteriorating roof, floor joist, and stairs led to its closure.

Post Closure

A strong thunderstorm on August 16, 2007 damaged the front entrance framing of Memorial Hall after a sudden drop in barometric pressure caused a vortex to form inside the building. An assessment report from E.L. Robinson was not promising. The report stated that while the exterior framing was in great condition, the inside was in “dire shape.”

The two recommendations given to the City Council included a tear-down or restoration, estimated to cost $200,000 and $7.7 million, respectively. A third option would be to gut the building and to erect a steel structure on the outside to keep the building standing as a monument, estimated to cost $500,000.

The interior would require complete removal because of structural concerns. The building would also need to be abated for asbestos and lead paint. The city pursued grants for further structural assessment.

A town hall meeting hosted by Mayor Rich Blankenship on June 24, 2008 allowed citizens and architects to voice their opinion regarding the future of Memorial Hall. Architects Walker and Associates presented a plan to demolish the interior of the structure, install steel bracing for support and convert the building site into a park with a stage at a cost of $240,000. The bracing would also be load-bearing so that in the future floors could be re-installed.

One citizen proposed a bed and breakfast and offices, although the costs was estimated at $3 million to $4 million, making such a proposal economically unfeasible.

On November 24, representatives from American Legion Post 433 stated that they would join other veterans groups in an attempt to rebuild Memorial Hall. The Post sought the support of other local veterans groups, hosting the the Memorial Hall Festival on August 15, 2009. The Post formed the Veterans Memorial Hall Restoration Fund, a nonprofit founded for the purpose of the building’s restoration.

The Post had hoped to receive a grant from the federal government for $2.4 million. In order to obtain the grant, the non-profit would have had to own the building. The city had planned to transfer the building to the Ironton Port Authority, who would have then transferred it to the non-profit if it could raise $500,000 towards the restoration within two years. Unfortunately, the groups were only able to raise $20,000 and gave up their private fundraising efforts.

A detailed structural assessment of Memorial Hall was conducted on May 6, 2011. It was recommended that Memorial Hall be demolished because restoration costs could be as high as $8 million. A tear down would cost $250,000.

In early 2012, the mayor approached county commissioners about the possibility of transferring ownership of the building from the city to the county. Possible reuse potential included a countywide emergency operations center for dispatchers and emergency medical services. The county had applied for a $1 million Homeland Security grant in 2011 for that specific purpose but did not receive it.

In early 2014, the city engineer estimated that the cost of partially demolishing Memorial Hall was $118,000. When bids were opened, none were received. A second round of bidding also produced no results. On the third attempt, two bids were received for $127,000 and $158,000.

Demolition of Memorial Hall began in early June by Southern Ohio Salvage.
