There was an earlier Lebanon Opera House. It’s listed in the 1897-98 edition of the Julius Cahn Theatrical Guide. It had a seating capacity of 1,200 and was located on the second floor. The proscenium opening was 28 feet wide and the stage was 25 feet deep. Owen Briggs was the Manager. Unfortunately, the listings in this Guide do not give street addresses, but it was somewhere in downtown Lebanon. I’m guessing that it burned down and was replaced in 1924 by the current Lebanon Opera House. The 1897 population of Lebanon was 4,500.
