The Jefferson Theater at the corner of Free Street and Oak Street in Portland. The theater was built in 1897, and after long deliberation it was decided to name it after Joseph Jefferson, who was famous for the role of Rip Van Winkle. Jefferson traveled to Maine to deliver an address at the opening night of the play.

The theater was torn down in 1933.
