It was built as a regimental armoury in 1898 and was converted to a civic gathering hall in 1910.
In 1930 the Buffalo Majors started life as a team in the American Hockey Association. They added artificial ice to the auditorium and began to play here in Janauary, 1931. The ice had to be covered in February for a bowling tournament.
The Majors played the next season but folded in January. After that the auditorium was coverted full-time to a bowling alley.
The building still stands as a municipal supply warehouse.
