This listing is in error as it was not the home of the 1939-era Plaza Theatre. That was located in the Community Building. This venue is open as the Greenfield Opera House and opened as the Opera House. Dedicated on August 8, 1888. Regular programming was discontinued in 1917 though sporadic events took place soon thereafter.

The old opera house was purchased in 1987 by a group trying to rekindle its past.In August of 1988, the theatre re-launched with a live play. It also served as a home for country music until 2010. That building was brought back to usage in 2018 with live music and local events.

This venue is open as the Greenfield Opera House and opened as the Opera House.
