Very nice traditional opera house setting for concerts/events. Friendly staff and good location are a definite plus, one toilet each for men and women are the downside. Overall it is a wonderful place for entertainment events.

The Opera House is a lovely little venue for performances or craft fairs or any gathering. Almost Shaker in its simplicity it's just a nice space to share and enjoy community activities. May it last another hundred years.

Took friends from Richmond to the Opera House on November 2 to see Larry Keel and the Natural Bridge. We had a blast. Second time there for a bluegrass concert and can't wait to go back!
