The Grand Ledge Opera House was built as a roller skating rink in 1884. The building was converted into an opera house known as Blake’s Opera House which opened on May 12, 1886. Blake’s Opera House was used for talent shows, vaudeville, and athletic contests. At some point it became Sackett’s Opera House and silent movies were shown here. The opera house closed and became a furniture store in 1928.

Around 1984 Mapes Furniture donated the opera house to the Grand Ledge Area Historical Society. Today, the Grand Ledge Opera House is used primarily as a community center and for meetings, weddings and an occasional concert.
