Opera House/Liberty Hall


category : Historic Buildings
Opera House/Liberty Hall Liberty Hall was rebuilt in 1911 as Bowersock Opera House after fire destroyed the original Liberty Hall. Renovated in the 1980s, it is now home to a fine arts theatre and live music venue. The tunes drifting from the building today are a far cry from the theatrics of Cecil Lean and Florence Holbrook's 1912 performances.

Today, Liberty Hall is a favorite of touring bands and soloists swinging through the Midwest. Folk singer Joan Baez, Talking Heads' David Byrne, Cuban band Los Van Van, saxophonist Maceo Parker and eclectic Bela Fleck and the Flecktones have stood in the hall's spotlight while fans clamored for more.
