Stuarts Opera House


History in downtown square!

Built as a theater in 1897, this stunning historical building opened as an Opera House, where the top acts of the day were booked! The Opera House was open for operation until 1927, when business slowed due to the decline of the local coal business. In the 1970s, the building was bought by the Hocking Valley Museum of Theatrical History, and was reopened for modern day theater! Shows and concerts are always being added to the lineup, so make sure to check out the Stuart Opera House website to learn about upcoming shows!
