There is an Ilion Opera House listed under Ilion NY in the 1897-98 edition of the Julius Cahn Official Theatrical Guide. Unfortunately, no address is given. The seating capacity was 1,000 and F.C. Blum was the Mgr. The proscenium opening was 30 feet wide X 18 feet high, and the stage was 25 feet deep. The auditorium was on the second floor. There were 2 weekly newspapers in Ilion, and 2 hotels for show folk. The 1897 population of Ilion was 5,000.
