The Liddon Building
This historic landmark in downtown Corinth was designed & built by
Benjamin Franklin Liddon from 1903-05, and was originally called the "Citizens
Savings Bank" building. It was built of Alabama limestone over brick
in a style called "Richardsonian Romanesque". Mississippi painter
Wyatt Waters featured this building in his 1997 watercolor, "Column
As I See 'Em".
The bank occupied the corner of Franklin & Cruise Streets behind the
granite column, until about 1913. In 1932, The Security Bank started there.
The second floor was occupied by several local doctors & dentists
over the years, and during WW2, the Red Cross office was there. The third
floor was used by many local social clubs for meetings

Pickwick Theatre Building
built in 1913 as the "Gem Theater" by B.F. Liddon, this building
has undergone several changes over the years. As a theater, it originally
had 300 seats on the first floor, and a balcony with about 150 seats.
It was centrally heated & cooled, but only showed 'silent movies'
for an admission of 5 cents. Since Mr. Liddon was building the Coliseum
nearby, he closed the Gem in 1923, and converted it to retail space. By
1935, Pickwick Dam was under construction, so the retail space was converted
back to a theater, and reopened as the "Pickwick Theater", which
by this time, could show movies with sound. It closed in the summer of
1961, and in the mid 1960's was converted back to retail space and continues
to be used this way today. Located at 603-605 Cruise Street.
