This building, now housing the Howard Area Community Center’s Family Center, was once the headquarters of the travel film pioneer and impresario Burton Holmes. Coining the term “travelogue,” Burton Holmes gave travel lectures to packed audiences across the country throughout the 1910s, ’20s, ’30s, and ’40s. He illustrated his talks with slides and, later, with motion pictures. The Burton Holmes Laboratory was where his travel films were produced.
