Lost Palace of Light

Record #:
Called the \"Pleasure Palace of the South,\" the Lumina, built at Wrightsville Beach in 1905, was 25,000 square feet of fun, swimming, and dancing. For little or no money people could dance to the music of Kay Kaiser or Guy Lombardo. The building, illuminated by thousands of lights, was \"the place to be\" from 1910 to 1940. In 1973, it was torn down to make space for apartments and condominiums.
