Bite-Sized History: Thank Frank Jones

The fifth chapter of Bite-Sized History begins when Frank Jones buys and renovates The Music Hall, then promptly dies. H.W. Hartford purchases the theater, which goes on to host famous touring companies and local acts. Also, hear about the theater’s role in the Russo-Japanese peace treaty of 1905. 

This video project comes to us from J. Dennis Robinson and filmmaker Jay Childs and serves as the perfect companion to the definitive Music Hall history book authored by Robinson, Music Hall: How a City Built a Theater and a Theater Shaped a City. Watch all five chapters here.
