A river runs through it…

River

With all the flooding happening I thought I would share a little known fact about the Paramount and State Theatres – they are built on top of an underground creek.  Pumps in the basement keep these landmarks high and dry, but during heavy rains you can listen to the water running through special channnels in some of the walls that carry the water down to the pumps in the old boiler room.  It’s kind of cool and creepy at the same time.
