Martha Ellen Tye, (1909 - 1998), was a life-long city resident and philanthropist who, along with her family, supported the arts in Marshalltown, Iowa.  In 1967 she contributed the funds to add a first-class, 450 seat theatre (inaugurated in May of 1969) onto the already existing Fisher Community Center and Art Museum, making the northwest corner of the Center Street and Anson Street intersection the fine arts hub of Marshalltown.  We are so very grateful for her generosity and proud to offer you this tour of The Martha Ellen Tye Playhouse.
