Parker Auditorium

Parker Motors/Parler Auditorium – The Parker Auditorium was located on the top floor of the Parker Motor Company 0n First Street SW. (Across the street from what is now the Blue Rider Bar). The Parker Motor Co. was the Dodge Dealer early on and was eventually purchased and owned by Don Moe and became Don Moe Dodge. The Parker Auditorium was on the third floor and was used for many different events from boxing matches to conventions and roller skating on the weekends. It burned in the early 1950’. The only thing that saved the rest of the building was there was a double floor in the Auditorium and it did not burn through the second floor before the fire was contained.
