Erected - 1910

— 119 South Magnolia Avenue —

Sanford's center for entertainment, the Imperial Opera House opened June 15, 1910. The contractor W.G. Hammond built the building for the owners T.J. Miller and son. George A. DeCottes was the first lessee of this building which replaced a barn-like structure across the street as the town's opera house.

The building is constructed in the Florentine Palazzo style of rusticated concrete block with a flat roof and parapet. The exterior has since been covered with stucco and the mezzanine windows and the arched doors have been enclosed. The front of the building features a suspended canopy with a mansard roof which was added after 1925.
