Vernon, CA, USA
Opened in 1914, the Arena was largely responsible for making boxing popular in Southern California. It closed down August 21, 1923. Jack Doyle then opened the 7500-seat Vernon Coliseum August 28, 1923, at 32nd and Sante Fe.
Per a July 22, 1927, news-wire report: "Jack Doyle's old Vernon arena, scene of many Southern California's boxing matches during the four-round days, was virtually destroyed by fire early this morning. A nearby baseball park where the blaze is believed to have originated, was partially destroyed. The loss was estimated at $100,000."
