Our Tours in the News!
"Ryerson and business partner Tanya March lead walking
tours of the (Slabtown) area. 'This is the Hollywood and
Vine of Slabtown,' Ryerson said recently, standing near
the intersection of Northwest 23rd and Savier Street.
Behind him was a house built by Daniel Kern in 1882,
the oldest structure on Northwest 23rd. It's now
a chiropractor's office."

Slabtown Nob Hill Fun 
Fact #16



This building at Thurman and NW 24th was designed by Emil Schact and Son in 1912 to show motion pictures. 

1912: Ideal Theater
1927: The Senate 
1929: The Blue Bird
1944: Elmo
1951: The Crown
Closed December 1953

The building is offices and storefronts today and the 24th Avenue facade has a charming and readable ghost sign for the old Ideal Theater.  More history of the building and images can be found on my blog.-Tanya March
