About the building: It was built in 1873 when James Allan saw the need for a grain and produce warehouse to be used for buying, storage and selling of farm produce. The building was located next to the railroad tracks and a few years later he added a floor on the second story that became the opera house. This was where Chautauqua’s, dances, home talent plays, school graduations, and church festivals were held. As years went by, added to this were skating parties, movies and basketball games.
We also provide complete wedding packages held in the Allan Opera House. Check out our website!!
