Designed by architect Walker Willis, this theater opened as the Milton Opera House around 1913. It was renamed the Imogene after seven-year-old Imogene Gooch when her family bought the theater in 1921. The theatre closed in 1946, unsble to compete with a newer theater in town. In the 1980s the Santa Rosa Historical Society bought the long-closed building and restored it, opening a museum in parts of the building once used as retail space and a post office.
On January 7, 2009, a major fire destroyed a building adjacent to the Imogene. The theater suffered fire, smoke and water damage, but it is reported to be structurally sound and efforts to repair the damage are underway.
