Hippo History
The Hippodrome’s opening night was February 7, 1914 and featured a live seal act, a five-piece orchestra and a magic act on the bill. The theatre was operated by Mr. H.P. Hulsey and was known as “Hulsey’s Hipp” by locals. The Hippodrome was a place for road shows, vaudeville tours, movies and local talent shows and events.
