circa 1875Eli Cox, builder of several local covered bridges, had the contract to build this structure. During the construction, gas pipes were incorporated in anticipation of soon having a source for lighting. The Opera House was originally on the second floor of this building and the buildings immediately east and west of this one. There were platforms and seating for 450-500 people. The City Hall was upstairs behind the Opera House.
