The Woodward Opera House is the oldest authentic 19th century theater still standing in the United States. Built by Ebenezer Woodward, the first event was held there in 1851. His vision was to create a gathering space for the community to enjoy a variety of entertainment. Restoration efforts begin in the late 1990s and the building reopened for its first show in more than 100 years in February 2019, an effort of more than 20 years and $21 million.
