Two Special Events On Monday, May 28, 2018.

Memorial Opera House was built in 1893 by the Grand Army of the Republic to commemorate the veterans of the Civil War, and stands as one of, if not the only, Memorial Hall that for 125 years continues to be used for it's original purpose...a gathering place for the community and a salute to those who have given of themselves in service to our country.

It is only fitting that the Opera House will host TWO EVENTS on Memorial Day to honor the men and women who have given their lives to keep us safe.
