Remember it well. The old Settlement House was on Washington St.beside the Liberty Threater then it moved to Jefferson I think, one block south of Monroe where the overpass is now. It was called Settlement House because it was a Union Hall. They had wrestling matches there and drew some big name. Us street kids learned enough boxing to defend ourselves.

when were u there?

The union settlement house in the 50's to 60's
was located on Monroe where the by pass is now.
It was a united way funded project in those days.
There was a basketball court and baseball field
a play ground and activities inside the building.
I learned to play chess there by a program directer name was bob thompson.

I started pre school at USH in 1958 and my teachers name was Ms.marjorie.From 1958 to 1965 I practically lived there.The playground was where I learned to play chess and a variety of other games. What a great place to grow up!

Were there 2 Liberty Theaters? One was at 14 E High St which opened about 1908-10.
