The Penny Arcade

The Penny Arcade housed all manner of mechanical and electronic games from from the turn-of-the-century onward.  It ran down the West side of Main Street behind several other shops and what is now Casey's Corner.  In the mid-nineties, the Penny Arcade was combined with the other shops that fronted it (including the House of Magic) to create the Hall of Champions which featured sports related merchandise. 

The main entrance on the west side of Main Street.  Inside this entrance one could find the older games and diversions that fit the time period of Main Street.  As one walked deeper into the building there were more modern video games.

The "rear" entrance to the Penny Arcade facing the Hub.  Just to the left of this is Casey's Corner.  On the right is First Aid and the Crystal Palace Restaurant.
