The Opera House opened in January 1882. The stately red brick structure, with a tall four-faced clock tower, was a bustling site for community gatherings. In January 1898, almost 16 years after the day it opened its doors, the Opera House was ravaged by a disastrous fire.
Despite this tragedy, the Opera House was renovated and operated successfully for decades, in a wide diversity of uses, including showing movies as the Colonial Theatre. In 1982, however, the theatre closed its doors.
Today, the Junction City Opera House Foundation is working to preserve and restore this grand structure, and is seeking volunteers and donations.
