    Originally built in the 1920's as the Palace Theater, the structure burned down and William F. Ruffin added it to his collection of theaters, rebuilt it, and named it the Ruffin Theater. It has undergone several renovations through the years, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places ( #92000248) in 1992. Some of those facelifts modified it from it's humble beginnings as a "Moving Picture House" to a full-fledged 640 seat theater with a large stage. Elvis Presley is said to have played here on March 16, 1955.

    Now, with a freshly redesigned lighting system, and a new state-of-the-art sound system, the Historic Ruffin Theater can accommodate anything from a major stage production to a large concert.
