    "After the Arlington Hotel burnt down in 1923, Harman and Louis Peery devised a plan to build a grand theater like the Grand Opera House but with moving pictures. It was constructed after the manner of other famous theaters that were Egyptian-themed. The first feature played there was a silent film titled, ""Wanderer of the Wasteland"" and was accompanied by the famous pipe organ named, ""The Mighty Wurlitzer"". In 1951 the theater was renovated so that more people would be able to enjoy the films shown there. The theater exists today but only as a community theater and performing arts house."

    Name Meaning

    English: occupational name, from Middle English bakere, Old English bæcere, a derivative of bacan ‘to bake’. It may have been used for someone whose special task in the kitchen of a great house or castle was the baking of bread, but since most humbler households did their own baking in the Middle Ages, it may also have referred to the owner of a communal oven used by the whole village. The right to be in charge of this and exact money or loaves in return for its use was in many parts of the country a hereditary feudal privilege. Compare Miller . Less often the surname may have been acquired by someone noted for baking particularly fine bread or by a baker of pottery or bricks.Americanized form (translation into English) of surnames meaning ‘baker’, for example Dutch Bakker , German Becker and Beck , French Boulanger and Bélanger (see Belanger ), Czech Pekař, Slovak Pekár, and Croatian Pekar .History: Baker was established as an early immigrant surname in Puritan New England. Among others, two men called Remember Baker (father and son) lived at Woodbury, CT, in the early 17th century, and an Alexander Baker arrived in Boston, MA, in 1635.
