Built in 1927, the Trianon Ballroom was a dance hall that featured top jazz era orchestras including those led by Seattle’s Vic Meyer and Gay Jones. Jones recorded the town’s first ever jazz record.

Victor Myers had a residency at the ballroom for several years, and the venue was famous for its disregard for Prohibition laws. Myers went on to run for political office, and would campaign by driving a beer wagon through the city (during Prohibition) while his band played "Happy Days Are Here Again".

Today, the Trianon Ballroom is an office building.
