Corner of Smith and Main streets
Former Lyceum Hall

Built in 1869 by Plymouth’s active German Singing Society, The Lyceum Hall was the scene of theatricals, early musicals, county meetings and horticulture events. The building was purchased by Charles Lautenbach in 1884. He was the director of the singing societies and hosted the annual ‘SaengerFest’ of the Eastern Wisconsin Singing Society. He conducted the “Harmony” group, a mixed society, in the 1920s which continued for 30 years. This group gave concerts and minstrel shows. An addition was made on the south side of the hall and a park for a Palm Garden. A residence was built on the east side in 1911. The Lautenbach family owned the Lyceum Hall for 66 years.
