There is a “New Opera House” listed for McPherson in the 1897-98 edition of the Julius Cahn Official Theatrical Guide. There are no street addresses in this Guide. The Mgr was C. H. Hubbell; the seating capacity is not given. Tickets are 25 cents to 75 cents. The theater had electric illumination and a stage 28 feet deep. Hotels for show folk were the Union and the Keene; Newspapers were the daily Republican, and the weeklies Democrat and Opinion. Railroads were the UP, Rock Island, and Santa Fe. The 1897 population of McPherson was 4,000.
