Old Kennett High School
The Fireman's Auditorium was built in 1905 and housed a movie theater. The building was torn down in 1965 to allow for a parking lot for the bank which sat at the corner of S. Broad and E. State Street.  The bank was demolished in 2007 and the Franklin Center was built there.  Click the link below to see a home movie from the 1940 Kennett Square Homecoming celebration.
